And they’ve also covered Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer’!

Ahead of the release of their hotly-anticipated debut album ‘The Overload’ later this week, Yard Act have shared new single ‘Pour Another’, as well as revealing a cover of Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer’.

“‘Pour Another’ zooms in on the post-party conversations many hedonists will be all too familiar with,” the band’s James Smith says. “It leaves the impending doom of daily life in a world on fire at the door, at that point in the night when you don’t want to let go of the moment you’re in, when everything is perfect and everyone is your new best friend. Those moments fade, because nothing stays as it was. You’re woken with a bang and you have to face the truth.”

“We did ‘Tiny Dancer’ ‘cause our new best pal Elton has been so kind about us in the press recently,” James adds. “A song like Tiny Dancer seems so far removed from what people assume Yard Act is, we thought it would be a really interesting way of showing not only our own versatility, but also the versatility of a song as good as ‘Tiny Dancer’.”

Check them both out below.
