Elton John and Leon Russel From “The Union”
Elton John and his longtime “idol”, singer-songwriter Leon Russel, will release a new album titled, “The Union” on October 19th.
They’ll celebrate the release with a show at New York’s Beacon Theatere.
Elton and Leon last collaborated when John opened for Russel at New York’s Fillmore East.
“His music takes me back to a wonderful time in my life, of music and experimenting, people sharing what we had,” John said to Rolling Stone about Russell, who had hits with “A Song For You” and “Delta Lady” in 1970. “It pisses me off that he was forgotten about.”
