29 September 2017, 11:16
The pop legend is celebrating an amazing 50 years of writing songs with Bernie Taupin, and he's marking it in style.
Diamonds will be released on November 10 via UMC, and will be available in various physical and digital formats.
The 'ultimate' anthology will be released as a double CD, a 2 LP heavyweight 180 gram vinyl, a 3CD box set and as a download.
The album will cover all eras of Elton's stellar career, from 'Your Song' to 'Rocket Man' to 'Are You Ready for Love' and more.
It will also come with a 10-page booklet featuring illustrations of Elton by artist Richard Kilroy.
Elton said of the retrospective with Taupin: "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."
