Win 'The Union' by Elton John and Leon Russell!
Decca Records is pleased to announce the single release of “If It Wasn’t for Bad,” available now on iTunes and all digital retailers.
The highly anticipated single is the first to be made available from 'The Union', the collaborative album with Elton John and Leon Russell to be released October 19th in the U.S. on Decca (October 25th in the U.K. on Mercury Records.)
The album marks the first time these iconic artists have worked together since 1970.
“If It Wasn’t For Bad,” written by Leon Russell, features vocals by Elton John and piano and vocals by Russell along with an extraordinary band bringing a bold rock/country sound organically crafted by these true musical legends.
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 album features a variety of musical genres from R&B, soul, gospel, country, pop and rock. The 14-track disc includes selections written by Elton and his lifelong lyricist Bernie Taupin, as well as the combined incomparable songwriting team encompassing Leon, Elton, Bernie and T Bone.

But, what was the exact name of that very same pub - that is still there today?!
