West Coast is a stripped down, lyric driven album reminiscent of Elton’s early 1970’s releases. The standout track is “I Want Love,” a return to form for both Elton and Bernie Taupin. Guests include Stevie Wonder, Rufus Wainright and Garly Barlow. Elton John has worked with lyricist Bernie Taupin as his songwriting partner since 1967; they have collaborated on more than 30 albums to date. In his five-decade career Elton John has sold more than 300 million records, making him one of the best-selling music artists in the world. He has more than fifty Top 40 hits, including seven consecutive #1 US albums, 58 Billboard Top 40 singles, 27 Top 10, four #2 and nine #1. For 31 consecutive years (1970-2000) he had at least one song in the Billboard Hot 100.
