Lady Gaga and Elton John arrive at the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Feb. 28, 2016 in Beverly Hills, Calif.

There are two big star-studded Elton John tribute albums on the way next month. Restoration, which was spearheaded by John’s longtime songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, finds contemporary country singers offering their own take on his pop classics. And the other, Revamp, was organized by Elton John himself, who reached out to various pop and rock stars to see what they could do with his songs.

We’ve heard one song from each project so far -- Chris Stapleton’s gravel-voiced version of “I Want Love” and Q-Tip and Demi Lovato’s slightly funkier “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” -- and now we’re getting a Lady Gaga rendition of John’s 1970 hit “Your Song.” Gaga and John performed the song together at the 2010 Grammys, and her recorded take on the song stays pretty faithful to both that version and the original, surrounding her powerful voice with stately piano and strings.
