Elton John announced his two new cover albums Revamp (Island Records) and Restoration (Universal Music Group Nashville), will both release April 6th. The artists on these albums will re-imagine John's hits, which he produced with songwriter Bernie Taupin.
I think each of these artists (see track list below) will do a great job re-imagining his legendary songs in their own way! Elton John told E! News "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, on Revamp I wrote out a wish list of people that I would love and asked them, to my surprise most of them said yes, and we have quite an astonishing eclectic crew."
Elton, who would say no to you? I love how he's so humble. Let me say it for him, he's a legend and anyone on this album should feel honored.
Will you purchase these albums? What track are you looking forward to hearing the most?
