Elton John and Burberry Team-Up to Release Limited Edition Boxset

Back in 2015, Elton John worked with English luxury giant Burberry on a Billy-Elliot-inspired marketing campaign. Now, Elton John is working with Burberry again, this time on limited edition LP rereleases of six of his albums, including 11-17-70, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, Too Low for Zero, and Songs from the West Coast, the last of which is seeing its vinyl debut. In addition to the albums, the box set contains restored album artwork and liner notes, all nestled in a brilliant red box festooned with gold glitter and emblazoned with Elton John’s gilded signature. The 800 box sets will hit Burberry stores in the US, Europe, Asia, and Canada next month, as well as the Burberry website. (Billboard)
