-Picked as the #3 album of 2010 by Rolling Stone
-Produced by Oscar® and Grammy® winner T Bone Burnett
-Debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart

This stunning album pairs multiple Grammy® winner Elton John (one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with over 250 million records sold) and legendary Grammy® winning pianist Leon Russell (who will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2011). Featuring guests Neil Young, Brian Wilson, Booker T. Jones, Robert Randolph, and a 10-piece gospel choir, it’s no wonder that The Union is one of the most critically acclaimed albums of 2010.

Two rock giants, one largely forgotten, rekindle a friendship and make music that ranks with their best.”Rolling Stone

The Union is a unique collaboration of two of the most talented artists in the music business. Combining forces and fusing diverse talents, John and Russell along with T. Bone Burnett have produced an extraordinary album. Recorded live in the studio with John and Russell on dueling pianos, the album features a variety of musical genres from R&B, soul, gospel, country, pop and rock. Icons Neil Young and Brian Wilson provide guest vocals on the 16-track record along with legendary R&B organist Booker T. Jones, steel guitarist Robert Randolph and a 10-piece gospel choir. Cameron Crowe has filmed the sessions for a documentary, creating too a moment of history as this is the first time that the genesis of Elton’s music has been recorded on film. Critics who have had an early preview of the album are united in praise for the work that Elton describes as a “Seventies record with a modern feel”.
