Elton John Announces New Album ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ Featuring Nicki Minaj, Eddie Vedder, Stevie Nicks, and More

    Elton John has announced a new album titled The Lockdown Sessions. Out October 22 via Interscope, the record features collaborations with Young Thug and Nicki Minaj, Eddie Vedder, Stevie Nicks, Stevie Wonder, Brandi Carlile, Lil Nas X, Charlie Puth, and more. It also includes previously released collaborations with Dua Lipa (‘Cold Heart (Pnau Remix)’), Rina Sawayama (‘Chosen Family’), and Gorillaz (‘The Pink Phantom’). Find the full tracklist below.

    John said in a statement about the new album:

    The last thing I expected to do during lockdown was make an album. But, as the pandemic went on, one‐off projects kept cropping up. Some of the recording sessions had to be done remotely, via Zoom, which I’d obviously never done before. Some of the sessions were recorded under very stringent safety regulations: working with another artist, but separated by glass screens. But all the tracks I worked on were really interesting and diverse, stuff that was completely different to anything I’m known for, stuff that took me out of my comfort zone into completely new territory. And I realised there was something weirdly familiar about working like this. At the start of my career, in the late 60s, I worked as a session musician. Working with different artists during lockdown reminded me of that. I’d come full circle: I was a session musician again. And it was still a blast.
