Elton John and Leon Russell’s ‘The Union available now! Signed vinyl edition being sold for charity

>Elton John and Leon Russell’s high anticipated collaboration album ‘The Union’ is now available in stores and from digital retailers. Produced by Oscar and multiple-Grammy winning producer T Bone Burnett, ‘The Union’ was recorded live in the studio with Elton and Leon on dueling pianos. The 14-track disc includes selections written by Elton and his lifelong lyricist Bernie Taupin, as well as the combined incomparable songwriting team consisting of Leon, Elton, Bernie and T Bone covering a variety of musical genres-from R&B, soul, gospel, country, pop and rock.

Rave reviews are already starting to pour in on the album, with Rolling Stone giving ‘The Union’ a 5 out of 5 stars rating and stating “The Union is a rare gesture in a dying business: an act of gratitude.” USA Today also praised the album, giving it 3 ½ out of 4 stars, saying “John’s voice and key-pounding , but producer T Bone Burnett does a good job mingling them with Russell’s country drawl and funky playing style.”

In other ‘The Union’ related news, Elton and Leon are offering framed vinyl editions of the album signed by both of them with the proceeds going to the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Limited to just 15, these special items come in a black metal frame with plexiglass, certificate of authenticity and numbered hologram sticker.
