Elton John Shares Previously Unreleased ‘Regimental Sgt. Zippo’

Elton John has shared a new video for his lost 1968 psychedelic song “Regimental Sgt. Zippo.”

The track is part of John’s upcoming box set, Jewel Box, featuring album tracks, demos, B-sides and other rarities spread across the music legend’s half-a-century-old career.

The box set, which consists of 60 previously unreleased tracks, is scheduled for release on November 13.

Five songs from the set – “Les Aveux,” “Stone’s Throw from Hurtin’,” “(Gotta Get A) Meal Ticket,” a demo of “Sing Me No Sad Songs” and “Snow Queen” – are currently available on streaming services.

“The title track of an unreleased debut album, this track captures Elton and Bernie in full 60s psychedelic mode,” says a press release.

The song was recorded and produced at the DJM studios, the same building that housed the Beatles‘ publishing company, Northern Songs.

“The song is an affectionate nod to Sgt Pepper and the era,” according to the press release.
