New Elton John Boxset Coming June 16

Universal Music will release Elton John: Classic Album Selection (1970-73) on July 16, to follow the July 2 release of the Elton John Vs Pnau single Good Morning To The Night.


The box set comprises the great and much-loved albums ELTON JOHN, TUMBLEWEED CONNECTION, MADMAN ACROSS THE WATER, HONKY CHATEAU and DON'T SHOOT ME I'M ONLY THE PIANO PLAYER.

You can order this fabulous album set here.

Australian duo Pnau are best known for their side-project Empire Of The Sun; Elton John signed the pair after hearing their record, and now with his blessing, a selection of Elton's old masters will be re-imagined into an album featuring their recreations of his classic songs between 1970 and 1976. Many of these classic songs can be found on this new box set.

It contains five of Elton John's quintessential and most acclaimed albums from 1970-1973; Elton John, Tumbleweed Connection, Madman Across The Water, Honky Chateau and Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player.These albums (now including selected bonus tracks) provided the backbone of Elton's early career and were the source of a series of breakthrough hits which would propel him to become one of the most successful British artists of all time.
