2018 is shaping up to be an exciting year for musical legend Elton John! Not only does he have Grammy tribute concert coming up, but he has just announced two separate cover albums coming out just a few days before! Artists across all different genres, including country, will lend their talent for renditions of some of Sir Elton John's best hits on the albums Revamp and Restoration.
Restoration will feature more of a country twist on the icon's classics, with mega artists such as Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves and Willie Nelson on the roster. John said that Restoration was longtime writing partner Bernie Taupin's project, where Revamp was more of his own.
“It's always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it," John explained. “As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp and 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."
And don't miss Elton John's Grammy salute concert, which airs Tuesday, April 10, at 9PM EST on CBS.
Both Revamp and Restoration will be released Friday, April 6.
