(CAPITOL RECORDS) - After a seven year hiatus Elton John is set to release his first solo album, "The Driving Board", on September 24th.
The first offering off the CD is "Home Again" which debuted with a music video online. John is not seen in the video.
The 15 track album was written by John and his longtime writing partner Bernie Taupin and produced by T Bone Burnett.
After 40 years in the music industry John said in a press release, "In many ways, I feel like I'm starting again, making records. Several years ago when beginning to work with T Bone and being in the studio with Leon Russell for The Union, I had to ask myself, 'What kind of music do I really want to make?', and I realized that I had to go back to go forward again. I needed to strip away the excesses and get back to the core of what I do as an artist. That's what The Diving Board represents. I'm incredibly excited about every aspect of this album: The performances, T Bone's production, Bernie's lyrics and the songs we've created. The Diving Board is the album I've been waiting to make for decades."
Deluxe and super-deluxe versions of the album will also be available with bonus tracks.
