Music legend Elton John is set to return to the charts with a new studio album this September.
According to reports by Billboard, the new album, tentatively titled ‘The Diving Board’ will consist of 13 tracks written with long-time collaborator Bernie Taupin.
Speaking of the forthcoming album, Sir Elton said:
The album is a mix of gospel, blues, jazz, brass band music, pop and a waltz – everything I love about American music. Taupin treats each song as a short story that, in turn, giving the work a cinematic feel. This is the album I should be making after ‘The Union.’ It’s my most adult album.”
The tentative tracklisting for the new album looks to be as follows:
“Oscar Wilde Gets Out”
“A Town Called Jubilee”
“The Ballad of Blind Tom”
“Can’t Stay Alone Tonight”
“Take This Dirty Water”
“The New Fever Waltz”
“Mexican Vacation (Kids in the Candlelight)”
“The Diving Board”
