Elton John

Joseph Guay

Release Date: Sept. 24
Label: Capitol

Elton John returns to his roots on his first solo album since 2006’s The Captain & the Kid, working with producer T Bone Burnett and longtime songwriting partner Bernie Taupin on an expansive collection of songs built around piano, bass, drums and voice. “It is the starkest album I have ever done, but it has palates of color all over the place, which is T Bone’s trademark,” John says of the project. “I’m so thrilled with the way it’s turned out.” “The Diving Board” will get extensive support on the road when John tours Europe in early September before heading to Las Vegas to play the iHeartRadio Festival and resume his shared residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
