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 and 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."
"Because of our love of all kinds of music, we're not stuck in one genre," adds Taupin. "From day one we borrowed from everything that's good about American music – whether it's blues, country, gospel, pop, pure rock – everything got thrown in the mix. I think that's why our music over the years has been so varied. It would be tiring if you just got stuck in one niche your entire career, especially when it's one as long as ours."
