    The Union is a collaborative album by Elton John and Leon Russell, released on October 19, 2010. It served as a reunion of sorts for the two musicians, as Russell had been a major influence on John's early career. The album was produced by T-Bone Burnett and marked the first time John and Russell had worked together since the 1970s.

    "The Union" features a blend of rock, blues, and gospel influences, showcasing the distinct styles of both artists. The album comprises 14 tracks, including new compositions as well as reworked versions of previously released songs. It received positive reviews from critics, who praised the chemistry between John and Russell and the album's nostalgic yet fresh sound.

    "The Union" debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart, becoming Elton John's highest-charting album in the United States since 1976. It sold approximately 80,000 copies in its first week. The album also peaked at number one on the Billboard Rock Albums and Tastemaker Albums charts. Overall, it achieved moderate success and helped reintroduce Leon Russell to a wider audience.
