Elton John is a musical icon nearly without peer. The flamboyant, British piano maven has sold millions of records, created more than a few generation defining hits, and influenced an untold amount of artists throughout his nearly 50 years of making music. Thus, it makes all the sense in the world that some of the biggest stars on the planet would be lining up to pay homage to his legacy through a pair of new tribute album.

The two different collections are titled Revamp and Restoration. The former is a set of new takes on some of Sir Elton’s greatest hits, re-imagined by some of the biggest pop and rap stars in the world like Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Mary J. Blige, Q-Tip, Sam Smith, Miley Cyrus, Queens Of The Stone Age and Logic to name a few. The latter is collection takes on a countrified slant thanks to the likes of Chris Stapleton, Don Henley and Vince Gill, Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson and more.

“As songwriters, [wordsmith] Bernie [Taupin] and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp & Restoration choose to add their own unique twist in the process,” Elton said in a statement. “It means that our music is still relevant and ultimately that our songs continue to reach new audiences. We’re humbled and thank them all for their generosity.”
