Hunter Hayes, Zac Brown Band and the Band Perry are among the artists who'll be featured on a deluxe, 40th anniversary edition of Elton John's landmark 1973 album, "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." The two-CD set will feature a remastered edition of the original album and a bonus disc of covers by those artists, along with Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sandé, Fall Out Boy and Imelda May, among others.
Hunter takes on the album's hit title track, with the Band Perry offering a rendition of "Grey Seal" and Zac Brown Band delivering their sparkling harmonies on, quite appropriately, "Harmony." "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and has sold more than 31 million copies worldwide.
The deluxe edition of the album will be released March 25. Also available will be a boxed set that includes a live CD of an Elton John concert from 1973, a DVD of a documentary film from that year and a 100-page illustrated hardcover book.
