A huge fan from the age of 11, Kate chose to record Rocket Man for the Elton John/Bernie Taupin tribute album, Two Rooms. It was the first cover tune she released since Donovan's Lord Of The Reedy River in 1981.
Unlike its UK and Australian counterparts, this release of Rocket Man does not include the instrumental version of Candle In The Wind.
