Bringing together a carefully curated selection of the world's biggest and best artists, Revamp sees Elton John and co-writer Bernie Taupin's best-loved songs reinterpreted by some of contemporary music's most vital talents. The album spans a breathtaking array of styles, shining a light on Elton's unparalleled influence across popular music of all genres, ranging from Hip-hop / Soul (Q-Tip, Mary J Blige) to Rock (The Killers, Queens of the Stone Age) to Pop (Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, P!nk & Logic).
"'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 arrives as follow up to Elton's ultimate greatest hits album Diamonds, released in November of 2017. Coinciding with his 70th birthday and the 50th anniversary of his phenomenal songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin, the album prompted a flurry of celebratory activity and was certified twice Gold in the UK, reaching the top 5 of the UK album chart upon its release.
Revamp stands as yet another timely reminder of John and Taupin's influence on the next generation of global stars at a time when their music continues to fill stadiums, sell albums and influence fashion. John stands alone as a true great, whose music still garners such admiration from a truly broad range of global stars.
