Career-Spanning Elton John Box Set To Include 60 Previously Unreleased Songs

Elton John has announced the upcoming release of an extensive box set including 60 previously unreleased songs.

Elton: Jewel Box is described as an in-depth exploration of Elton John’s extensive catalog including rarities from 1965-1971, lesser-known B-Sides, and deep cuts personally curated by him.

To be released on November 13 via UMC / EMI, the wide collection contains 148 songs spanning 1965 to 2019 on 8CD, 4LP, 3LP, 2LP, digital download and streaming formats.

The extensive back catalog covers deep cuts, rarities from the earliest stages of his and Bernie Taupin‘s musical journey, B-sides spanning 30 years and songs discussed in his best-selling, critically acclaimed 2019 memoir “Me.”

The 8 CD boxset comes in a beautiful hardcover book with the discs housed in the back, all wrapped in an outer slipcase. Each section comes accompanied with extensive notes including a track-by-track commentary by Elton for Deep Cuts.

Speaking about the box set, the legendary singer said, “As a devout record collector myself, this project has really excited me and I couldn’t be happier with the level of craft involved in such a carefully curated, lovingly constructed boxset.”
