Elton John will released ‘Diamonds’, a brand new deluxe greatest hits compilation, in early November.
To be made available in standard two disc, deluxe three disc and twin vinyl editions, the new best-of brings together most of the British superstar’s biggest hits from throughout his 47+ year career.
It also celebrates the superstar’s 50 year writing partnership with Bernie Taupin.
“We are at 50 years, and our relationship is healthier than it’s ever been,” Elton reveals. “There have been times in our relationship when we’ve written with other people, but it still didn’t stop the love.
“I love Bernie more than I’ve ever done and I think he probably feels the same way about me, because we’ve both led separate lives; we both write in separate rooms. We have an amazing respect and love for each other that’s only grown.”
‘Your Song’ kicks off proceedings on all editions, but there’s a procession of smash hits to follow, including ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Crocodile Rock’, ‘Candle In The Wind’, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, ‘I’m Still Standing’, ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’, ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight?’ and many, many more.
The deluxe three disc version also features ‘Good Morning To The Night’, his collaboration with Australia’s own Pnau. It also comes with a 72 page hardback book and postcards of illustrations of Elton.
‘Diamonds’ lands at retailers everywhere on Friday November 10.
