ELTON: Still on the Board
Elton is still working on his next album.
Elton John was supposed to release his new album, The Diving Board, this year, but it was pushed back to early 2013, and it might get pushed back even further. His producer, T-Bone Burnett, says, "This is the first time that Elton's had time to live with something before it's come out. There were like seven or eight songs that were so completely of a piece that they have an identity. I think he thought, 'You know, maybe I should write some more things in that mode so that the album has a tighter identity.' Some tunes were maybe too happy for the overall identity of the album."
The album, when it comes out, will be his 30th studio effort.
