Diamonds is a compilation album by British singer-songwriter Elton John, released in November 2017 via Rocket Entertainment and Virgin EMI Records.

Diamonds is being released in 2017 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the songwriting partnership between Bernie Taupin and Elton John.

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.

Elton John says: “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.”

Bernie Taupin says: “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.”

Diamonds was released in several formats, a 2CD package, a limited edition 3CD box set and a 2LP vinyl edition. The audio has been newly remastered especially for this release.

There are several tracks featured on this vinyl package that were not written by John and Taupin:  “Are You Ready For Love” (written by Casey James, Leroy M. Bell & Thom Bell), “Song For Guy” (Elton John), “Blue Eyes” (Elton John & Gary Osborne), and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” (Elton John & Tim Rice).

Check out the tracks:  “Your Song”; “Rocket Man”; “Tiny Dancer”; “Bennie and the Jets”; “Are You Ready For Love”; “I’m Still Standing”; and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”.

This limited double album 2LP record set is on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with digital download code, pressed in Europe.
