After digging into the song catalogs of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Peter Gabriel, Lena Hall has turned to the work of singer-songwriter Elton John for the third EP in her Obsessed series. The year-long project has Hall releasing an EP in every month of 2018, along with recording music videos for each track.
Watch the music video for "The Bitch is Back" from Hall's Elton John album above.
Obessed: Elton John features four addition tracks from John's catalog: "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," "Take Me to the Pilot," "Have Mercy on the Criminal," and "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting." All songs feature lyrics by Bernie Taupin.
Obsessed also features Justin Craig on guitar and keyboards, Matt Duncan on bass, keyboard, and saxophone, and Brian Fishler on drums and percussion. The album cover was designed by Stephanie Layton and photographed by Melisa Hall.
Hall won a Tony for her performance as Yitzhak in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. She played the role on tour, in addition to stepping into the title role. Her additional Broadway credits include Kinky Boots, Tarzan, and Cats.
