Covering a classic is a daunting task for any artist, and this one just happens to be the best-selling song of all time.
You can see Ed talk about Elton's music and hear a snippet of the cover version in the video above, or you can listen to the whole thing via Spotify below:
Ed's version is a tad more jauntier than the original, and sounds like a typically perfect ballad that he has become so well known for.
Revamp - which is released today (March 6) also features covers by the likes of Sam Smith, Coldplay and Florence + the Machine.
