Country singer makes guest appearance on John/Russell record

Neil Young, Leon Russell working on new album with Elton John
Elton John and veteran US singer/songwriter Leon Rusell are working on an album together featuring guests including Neil Young, it has been revealed.

Booker T Jones, guitarist Marc Ribot and drummer Jim Keltner contribute to the album, reports Billboard. Long-time Elton John collaborator Bernie Taupin has also been working on the record, it was revealed on Taupin's official website, Berniejtaupin.com.

"Basic tracks for Bernie and Elton's new album with Leon Russell have been recently completed and the gang is about to start vocals and overdubs immediately," it was explained on the site.

The message continued, "The trio has cut 15 songs ranging from Stones-like rockers, country-tinged ballads, gospel and even a Sinatra-like weepy similar to something torn from the grooves of 'In the Wee Small Hours' [1955 Frank Sinatra album].

"It's varied in scope and drenched in a rich tapestry of atmospherics. Don't expect to hear the old EJ/BT sound; this is organic recording unlike anything you've heard from our duo before."

A release schedule for the abum is yet to be revealed.
