Elton John revamps greatest songs in new album
Music legend Elton John has brought together a star-studded dream team to collaborate on a career-defining record.
Revamp is a selection of Elton John and co-writer Bernie Taupin’s most loved songs, re-imagined by a selection of the world’s biggest and best artists.
The record will feature the noteworthy talents of Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, P!nk, Florence + The Machine, Mary J Blige, Miley Cyrus, Queens of the Stone Age, Lady Gaga, Alessia Cara, The Killers, Mumford & Sons, Sam Smith, Q-Tip and Demi Lovato.
Revamp is a reminder of the longstanding global influence of Elton and Taupin’s creations, which continue to hold a treasured place in the hearts of many.
Last month Elton announced he will be embarking on one epic, final world tour, comprising of over 300 shows over three years, and across five continents.
The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will reach Australian and New Zealand shores in December 2019 and run through to February 2020.
Coinciding with Revamp will also be the release of a Nashville influenced album, Restoration, which will feature Elton’s songs reinterpreted by country music notables, including Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Miley Cyrus and Willie Nelson.
“It’s always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it,” says Elton.
“As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp choose to add their own unique twist in the process.”
“It means that our music is still relevant and ultimately that our songs continue to reach new audiences. We’re humbled and thank them all for their generosity.”
Revamp is out Friday 6 April on EMI Music Australia.
