THE UNION

The release of the highly anticipated collaboration between two musical legends, Sir Elton John and Leon Russell with The Union. This album marks the first time these iconic artists have worked together since 1970.

Produced by Oscar and Grammy winning producer T Bone Burnett, who won the 2010 Grammy for producing Raising Sand with Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, The Union features songs written by John and his lifelong lyricist Bernie Taupin, as well as in combination with the extraordinary talents of Russell and Burnett.

Recorded live in the studio with John and Russell on dueling pianos, the album features a variety of musical genres from R&B, soul, gospel, country, pop and rock. Icons Neil Young and Brian Wilson provide guest vocals on the 16-track record along with legendary R&B organist Booker T. Jones, steel guitarist Robert Randolph and a 10-piece gospel choir.
