Elton John releases epic collaborative project, ‘The Lockdown Sessions’

Elton John’s The Lockdown Sessions is out now as our favorite history making solo artist teams up with some of our favorite pop stars!

In March 2020 Elton was forced to pause his record breaking Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour due to the unfolding COVID pandemic. As the world began to shut down, different projects presented themselves with artists Elton had enjoyed getting to know through his Apple Music show Rocket Hour.

This was the beginning of one of Elton’s boldest and most interesting records to date — The Lockdown Sessions. This album saw Elton coming full circle and returning to his roots as a session musician.  

An album of collaborations recorded remotely over the last 18 months The Lockdown Sessions features UK #1 single “Cold Heart (PNAU remix)” with Dua Lipa, “Finish Line” with Stevie Wonder and “After All” with Charlie Puth.                                                        

Kicking off with global hit single “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” with Dua Lipa, the album takes the listener on a heady journey through many different genres, all held together with expert finesse and understanding by one of the greatest champions of music of our time. We’re especially excited about Elton’s collaboration with Brandi Carlile and Lil Nas X.

Much more than a mere collaboration album, The Lockdown Sessions is a dazzlingly diverse collection of 16 tracks with 10 brand new unreleased tracks that celebrates togetherness and sees Elton collaborating with an unparalleled range of artists only he could draw together.

The enduring influence of his musical milestone with one of the most ambitious projects ever conceived. An unprecedented 20+ artists feature spanning an unbelievably vast range of genres, generations, cultures, continents and more, each contributing a unique style to the album that is sure to hold its place amongst one of pop and rock’s greatest songbooks. 

Just last week, Elton set a new record as the only solo artist in Official UK Chart history to score a Top 10 single in six different decades.

An unparalleled career that has forever changed the cultural landscape, Elton John’s collaborations with Bernie Taupin and others continue to shape the cultural landscape, break records, top charts and win new fans across the generations.  

The Lockdown Sessions out now on three physical formats and digital formats. Listen Here
