Alongside a host of extras...
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

An instantly recognisable icon, Elton John's decade-spanning career owes it roots to one vital recording.

Released in 1974, 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' was the moment when a shy piano player was turned into an extravagant star.

Now the album is set to be re-issued for its 40th anniversary, packaged with a host of new recordings and unreleased extras.

Due for release on March 24th, the re-issue will be available on digital formats, CD, vinyl and limited-edition yellow vinyl.

In addition to this, a box set is in the works featuring the recording of 'Live At Hammersmith 1973' on CD, a DVD of Bryan Forbes’ 1973 film 'Elton John and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye To Norma Jean and Other Things', along with a 100-page illustrated hardback book packed with rare photos, memorabilia and a new essay containing interviews with Elton John and Bernie Taupin.

As if that wasn't enough, the box set also contains a set of nine cover versions, with artists such as Emile Sande and John Grant tackling some Elton John classics.

Check out a teaser below.

'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' is set to be released on March 24th.
