“The last thing I expected to do during lockdown was make an album,” said Sir Elton John in a social media post on Wednesday announcing precisely that: The Lockdown Sessions, a new album set for release by the legendary entertainer on Oct. 22.

His full post:

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 and I’ve ended with a selection of 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.

The list of collaborators who joined Sir Elton for this project is eye-popping, as well, and includes Dua Lipa, Charie Puth, Surfaces, Gorillaz, Rina Sawayama, Miley Cyrus, Brandi Carlile, Lil Nas X, Eddie Vedder, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Nicks and more. A few of the songs made their way to the masses previously, and are included here as part of the album project.
