Ed Sheeran, Fall Out Boy and the Zac Brown Band are among the artists who have recorded tracks from Elton John’s iconic 1973 album “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” for a new box set release.

The three acts, and Miguel, Hunter Hayes, The Band Perry, John Grant, Emeli Sande and Imelda May, have each picked a song from the album for the reissue package, which will be released in March.

Elton’s seminal breakthrough album has been remastered and will be issued on CD, vinyl and limited-edition yellow vinyl, but it’s a deluxe box set that is sure to become a must-have for fans – it will include a Live at Hammersmith 1973 CD, a DVD of Bryan Forbes’ 1973 film Elton John and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye to Norma Jean and Other Things, a 100-page illustrated hardback book packed with rare photos and memorabilia, and “suite” of nine, new cover versions of classic songs from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.

The songs include Sheeran’s cover of “Candle in the Wind,” Fall Out Boy’s rendition of “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” and Hayes’ version of the title track.
