Elton John - Revamp CD Release Party!

Revamp, the new album celebrating the extraordinary catalogue and songwriting partnership of 

ELTON JOHN and BERNIE TAUPIN featuring superstar artists like LADY GAGA, MARY J. BLIGE, P!NK, MILEY CYRUS, DEMI LOVATO, ED SHEERAN, SAM SMITH and more.

29792650 1780482378639449 5998642764894437376 N

The new renditions of timeless classics and artists featured on the album show the depth of the catalogue these two icons have created, which can easily cross musical genres and their unparalleled influence across popular music of all styles.

“'It's always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it,” says Elton John. “As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp & Restoration 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.”

“Because of our love of all kinds of music, we’re not stuck in one genre,” said Bernie Taupin. “From day one we borrowed from everything that’s good about American music – whether it’s blues, country, gospel, pop, pure rock – everything got thrown in the mix. I think that’s why our music over the years has been so varied. It would be tiring if you just got stuck in one niche your entire career, especially when it’s one as long as ours.”

Please find a full track listing below.
