Madman Across the Water will be revisited on June 10 for a lavish 50th anniversary reissue from Sir Elton John, and the legendary singer/icon has previewed the upcoming commemorative edition of his 1971 album with a previously unheard version of his classic track, “Tiny Dancer.”

This “Piano Demo” was made available Friday, and was the result of recording sessions at Dick James Studio in central London in the Spring of 1971. It’s an especially intimate version of the song, Elton alone at the piano “as a guide for the band to follow,” per the official word:

The 50th anniversary edition of Madman Across the Water will be made available in a variety of formats, including 3-CD set, 1 Blu-ray Super Deluxe Box Set (featuring 18 previously unreleased tracks), 4-LP, 1-LP limited edition cultured vinyl and 2-CD formats.
