Good Morning To the Night

Album: Good Morning To The Night (2012)
  • This hymn to the abandonment of one's senses is the title track to a collaborative record between Elton John and Australian dance duo Pnau, who consist of vocalist Nick Littlemore and guitarist Peter Mayes. Littlemore is best known for Empire of the Sun, which he formed with Sleepy Jackson's Luke Steele. Their single "We Are The People" was a worldwide hit.
  • The song was one of five official tracks released to coincide with the 2012 London Olympics.
  • Pnau is pronounced "pah-now" and the name is intended to simulate the sound of a gunshot.
  • Good Morning To The Night gave Sir Elton his first #1 album in the UK since November 1990, when he released a greatest hits package, The Very Best Of Elton John. However, the good news of the LP debuting at #1 was tempered by the fact that it was the lowest-selling chart-topping album of the 21st century to date, with a mere 14,342 first week sales.
  • The song's lyrics consist of a few lines from Elton's Honky Chateau track, "Mona Lisa and Mad Hatters."
