Elton John today announces the forthcoming release of ‘Diamonds’. Released on November 10th through UMC, ‘Diamonds’ is the ultimate greatest hits collection from Elton John and will be available on 2CD, 3CD limited edition boxset, 2LP heavy-duty gatefold vinyl and digital formats.

Kicking off with the ever-stunning ‘Your Song’, this definitive collection brings together all the landmark hits of one of the greatest song books of all time, including ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Candle In The Wind’, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, ‘Sacrifice’, ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight?’. Making its first appearance on an Elton hits collection, ‘Diamonds’ also features Elton’s duet with George Michael on the classic ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’.

‘Diamonds’ coincides with the 50th anniversary of Elton’s phenomenal songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin. 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 1970’s albums. While ‘Candle In The Wind’ topped the charts in three different decades and 2013’s critically acclaimed ‘The Diving Board’ was a top three hit in the UK, their legacy is one that is unrivalled in terms of longevity, creativity and commercial success.

The 2LP version is pressed onto heavy-duty 180 gram vinyl and contains gatefold artwork. Housed in an attractive lidded box. As well as a collection of some of the best loved songs of all time, all illustrations in these three formats are by contemporary artist Richard Kilroy.
