Elton John Posts Previously Unreleased Song Regimental Sgt. Zippo

Monday, 12 October 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Elton John has released a previously unheard song, Regimental Sgt. Zippo.

The Beatles-influenced, psychedelic track was recorded in 1968 and penned alongside longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin. It was originally intended as the title track for John's debut LP, but the record was never released. Instead, he put out 'Empty Sky' a year later. Revealing the song on Twitter, he wrote:

"From the album that never was… Regimental Sgt. Zippo was going to be the title track of my unreleased debut album in 1969. You can find it on my upcoming Jewel Box!”

It'll appear as one of 60 unreleased gems on the legendary singer-songwriter's upcoming box set collection, 'Elton: Jewel Box', due out on November 13 as eight CD, four LP, three LP and two LP sets.

In September, John previewed the package with a band demo of Sing Me No Sad Songs and Snow Queen with Kiki Dee.

John has rescheduled his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, after putting the dates on hold in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Head below for a full list of shows.
