Toro Y Moi is having a busy year with the release of his studio album What For?, and a recent surprise hip-hop mixtape, Samantha. The latters release caught many off guard as he’s typically been in the indie dance / psychedelic rock realm, but unexpectedly dropped a free 20-track mixtape of hip hop. Now Toro has teamed up with fellow touring keyboardist Anthony Ferraro of Astronauts Etc on a cover of Elton John’s classic tune “Rocket Man.” This pleasant remix brings a mellow vibe with a slick bassline and melodic keys setting a lush tone for the vocals to float atop, bringing a fresh take to a classic song. Enjoy!
