'Diamonds' - Out Now

Menu

Diamonds, Elton John’s ultimate greatest hits collection to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his phenomenal songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin, is out now!

It is available on EltonJohn.com and Amazon in a variety of different formats:

★  3 CD limited edition box set

★  2 CD

★  2 LP gatefold album

Spanning the many decades of Elton’s unparalleled career, each collection features newly remastered audio and is illustrated by British artist Richard Kilroy with iconic Elton looks from each of the five decades of his career.

We are at 50 years, and our relationship is healthier than it’s ever been. 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.
Elton John

The release of Diamonds coincides with the 50th anniversary of Elton’s phenomenal songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin. Meeting in 1967 through a music magazine advert seeking songwriters, Elton and Bernie went on to become one of the most enduring songwriting duos of all time, achieving a sustained level of success that puts them head and shoulders above the competition.

Catapulted into the limelight as a songwriting force in 1971 with Your Song, the duo never stood still creatively, defining an era with their run of back-to-back classic 1970s albums. While Candle In The Wind topped the charts in three different decades and 2016’s critically acclaimed Wonderful Crazy Night was a top ten hit in the UK, their legacy is one that is unrivalled in terms of longevity, creativity, and commercial success.

We still get a kick out of what we do; it’s what we do – when we come together and write something, it still has that magical quality to it – it doesn’t get any better than that. That feeling hasn’t aged.
Bernie Taupin
