track 10 / 17
Elton John & Brandi Carlile
I wrote 'Simple Things' with Andrew Watt early on and I liked it, but I loved it when Brandi came onboard. She is one of the most talented songwriters to me and we’ve been close friends for over 18 years. 'Simple Things' reminds me of a classic Bernie song, the lyrics are just so beautiful. I'm so pleased that Brandi and I have created this together, it's a real bucket list moment for me. She's done a beautiful cover of 'Madman Across the Water' which I love, and I can't wait to see what she does next. Like me, she's really invested in the next generation of talent and she's bringing out some great new music.
