''Made in England'' is the twenty-fifth studio album by English singer/songwriter Elton John, released in 1995. It was dedicated to Elton's boyfriend and future civil partner David Furnish. It was also dedicated to the memory of Denis Gauthier and Peter Williams. This is the last album to date to feature percussionist Ray Cooper. Bob Birch became Elton's Bass player for this album and many more to come.
While still promoting his work for ''The Lion King'' soundtrack, in September 1994, five months before its release as a single, the first track from ''Made in England'', "Believe", was played live by Elton John at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. "Believe" reached #15 in the UK and #13 in the U.S., and was the only American hit from the album to reach the Top 20. During November, Elton John toured Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Switzerland, Poland, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom, and Japan and other countries two months later.
An interesting peculiarity is that, much unlike his previous works, and with the exception of the title track, all of the album's songs have one-word titles. - Wikipedia
