A horde of renowned artists have united to commemorate Elton John’s musical legacy with upcoming two albums. – ‘Restoration’ by Universal Music Group Nashville and Revamp by Island Records.
The albums which are about to be released on April 6.
These wonderful albums will pay tribute to John's decades of blockbusters that were produced with songwriter Bernie Taupin. John uttered in a statement, "We have two completely different albums; Revamp being the pop one and Restoration being the country one. God, we have so many great artists doing our songs, it's quite incredible."
Rolling Stone revealed, "On Revamp I wrote out a wish list of people that I would love and asked them," he added. "To my surprise most of them said yes, and we have quite an astonishing eclectic crew."
The 70-year-old singer further told that 'Restoration' "was Bernie's project and he's a huge country fan," and Revamp "was more my project."
'Revamp' album contains a list of songs recreated by Coldplay, Mary J. Blige, Miley Cyrus, Alessia Cara, The Killers, Florence and the Machine, Lady Gaga, Mumford and Sons, Q-Tip and Demi Lovato, Pink and Logic, Sam Smith, Queens of the Stone Age and Ed Sheeran.
The album features a pop art cover with a concept of Terry O'Neil photograph of John, and it was reworked in neon.
'Restoration' album comprises the country covers by Dierks Bentley, Rosanne Cash and Emmylou Harris, Cyrus, Vince Gill and Don Henley, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris, Chris Stapleton, Willie Nelson, Brothers Osborne, Rhonda Vincent and Dolly Parton, and Lee Ann Womack.
"Because of our love of all kinds of music, we're not stuck in one genre. 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," Taupin shared. "It would be tiring if you just got stuck in one niche your entire career, especially when it's one as long as ours.
