Ultimate Greatest Hits 'Diamonds' Available Nov 10


Elton John and his longtime songwriting partner Bernie Taupin will commemorate the 50th anniversary of their wildly successful union with the release of Diamonds, a new career-spanning box billed as John’s “ultimate” greatest hits compilation.


Due in stores Nov. 10 and available to pre-order now, Diamonds will be released in multiple formats — in addition to streaming and digital download options, fans can choose between a double-disc standard edition, two-LP gatefold, or a limited run triple-disc box that adds “personal favorites curated by Elton himself,” a 72-page hardcover book containing the stories behind the songs and five postcard illustrations of John.

“We are at 50 years, and our relationship is healthier than it’s ever been,” says John in a press release. “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.”

“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,” adds Taupin. “That feeling hasn’t aged.”
