Thursday 6/23/22 9pm ET: Feature LP: Elton John – The One (1992)

The One is the twenty-third studio album by British recording artist Elton John, released on June 22, 1992. It was recorded at Studio Guillame Tell in Paris, produced by Chris Thomas and managed by John Reid. The album was dedicated to Vance Buck, and its cover artwork was designed by Gianni Versace.

The One spent three consecutive weeks at No. 2 without reaching No. 1 in the UK, being kept off the top spot by the Lionel Richie compilation Back to Front. However, it was John’s biggest-selling album in the US since 1975, and was certified 2× platinum in that country by the RIAA.
