To promote the release, Kate has officially published the 1991 video for Rocket Man for the very first time. She writes about the song on her official site today

Kate recalls:

I remember buying this when it came out as a single by Elton John. I couldn’t stop playing it – I loved it so much. Most artists in the mid seventies played guitar but Elton played piano and I dreamed of being able to play like him.

Years later in 1989, Elton and Bernie Taupin were putting together an album called Two Rooms, which was a collection of cover versions of their songs, each featuring a different singer. To my delight they asked me to be involved and I chose Rocket Man. They gave me complete creative control and although it was a bit daunting to be let loose on one of my favourite tracks ever, it was really exciting. I wanted to make it different from the original and thought it could be fun to turn it into a reggae version. It meant a great deal to me that they chose it to be the first single release from the album.

That meant I also had the chance to direct the video which I loved doing – making it a performance video, shot on black and white film, featuring all the musicians and… the Moon!

Alan Murphy played guitars on the track. He was a truly special musician and a very dear friend. Tragically, he died just before we made the video so he wasn’t able to be there with us but you’ll see his guitar was placed on an empty chair to show he was there in spirit.

This is the first time this video has officially been released since its original TV broadcast.

  1. Michael E. says:

    Thanks for posting this video, it’s brilliant, really inspired. I bought the single in 1989 when Kate’s work was hard to find in in the USA. This song was always my favorite Elton John song and when she sang it, her version became my favorite. I would love to hear Kate record her version of the Pearls Before Swine song (Rocket Man), that inspired Elton John and Bernie Taupin’s song.

    Watching this video, after listening to Kate’s music for so many years, I am struck by the consistent quality of her work. There is this linear theme if you will, that surfaces though her music and lyrics and through the images she creates in all of her work including this video.

    There are so many accolades used when discussing Kate’s work, and deservedly so, that it seems useless for me to add any more. But the feeling you get when watching, reading, or listening to her work makes one realize that she is certainly unique and that her contributions to music and film are actually artistic in a pure sense.

    She has created wonderful work that brings true joy to many people.
