Elton John Reveals New Album Details

(Radio.com) Forget everything Elton John said about his long-delayed album the last time his team spoke up. Apparently he'll change the album's name from Voyeur back to its original title, The Diving Board, and it won't be released likely until September, despite his songwriting partner Bernie Taupin recently suggesting a May release.

Fans may have to wait six+ months for the T Bone Burnett-produced album, which John previewed for journalists and friends last week, but he's giving a little taste of what's to come. "It's got everything I love about American music gospel, soul, country," he reportedly said at the listening (via Rolling Stone).

The Diving Board is also apparently the "most piano-orientated record [he's] ever made," though it does feature a few famous guests on instrumental duties. Raphael Saadiq played bass, while Doyle Bramhall II and producer Burnett played guitar on various songs and Motown legend Jack Ashford covered percussion.

"This is the album I should be making after The Union," John also reportedly said at listening, referring to his 2010 collaborative album with Leon Russell. "It's the most adult record I can make at my age. I'm just heading toward being 80 years old and playing at the Holiday Inn." more on this story
