Elton John assembled an impressive list of A-list talent for his new album, 'The Lockdown Sessions.'
The Lockdown Sessionswill have 16 songs, which are all collaborations recorded remotely over the last 18 months. The album will be released on Oct. 22 via Interscope Records. Artists featured on the album include Dua Lipa, Brandi Carlile, Jimmie Allen, Eddie Vedder, Stevie Wonder and Stevie Nicks.
Last March, Elton was forced to pause his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a press release, during quarantine, different projects presented themselves with artists he had enjoyed getting to know through his Apple Music show,
Rocket Hour,The Lockdown Sessionscame about."The last thing I expected to do during lockdown was make an album," he says in a statement."But, as the pandemic went on, one‐off projects kept cropping up. Some of the recording sessions had to be done remotely, via Zoom, which I'd obviously never done before. Some of the sessions were recorded under very stringent safety regulations: working with another artist, but separated by glass screens." headtopics.com
"But all the tracks I worked on were really interesting and diverse, stuff that was completely different to anything I'm known for, stuff that took me out of my comfort zone into completely new territory," he continues."And I realized there was something weirdly familiar about working like this. At the start of my career, in the late '60s, I worked as a session musician. Working with different artists during lockdown reminded me of that. I'd come full circle: I was a session musician again. And it was still a blast."
