Elton's reinvented as a dance act

Sir Elton John praised the work of Pnau

Sir Elton John is to be given a dance overhaul as his back catalogue is revamped by an acclaimed electronic duo.

The star has given his blessing for his old songs to be reworked by Australian act Pnau, who have sampled the early tracks and turned them into completely different tunes.

The duo have used up to nine of his tracks to feature on each of the songs - all dating from 1970 to 1976 - for their album Good Morning To The Night, to be released in June.

Sir Elton is also to play with the group - featuring Nick Littlemore, best known for his work under the name of The Sleepy Jackson and Empire Of The Sun - at a festival in Ibiza in July.

Sir Elton, who gave them access to his archive of songs, said of the project: "I am in awe of what they have done."
