Elton John’s ‘Secret’ Album Release

Several months after his Goodbye Yellow Brick Tour officially ended, Sir Elton John‘s new full length is several weeks away from being released.

Now 77-years-old, in February the iconic singer/songwriter was reportedly working on a “top secret” record, and now his long time friend and professional collaborator Bernie Taupin has revealed the Elton’s 32nd studio album is “done”.

Speaking at ‘The Other Songs Live’ in London earlier this week, The Sun newspaper confirmed that Taupin said “Elton and I have an album coming out very soon, but I daren’t say anything about it because I’m under strict orders to keep schtum.” “It’s all done and recorded.”

Teasing that that the LP will “surprise” and “excite” people, Bernie added: “I think it’s quite brilliant and quite contemporary and it will certainly surprise a lot of people and excite a lot of people and hopefully be successful.”

A reliable source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column “It’s all been very top secret but Elton is back in the studio working on a new album.” “Time frames are always movable, but the fourth quarter has been pencilled in terms of a release date.” “He adores music and that will never change but the desire to be as busy as he was has waned.”

The insider added that the legendary piano player – and father to sons Zachary (13) and Elijah (11) with husband David Furnish – will continue with his other ventures but wants to spend more time with his family after his recently completed massive world tour.

“Elton will still have a Rocket Hour radio show on Apple Music and his finger is very much still on the pulse; he just wants to slow down a bit and spend the time with his family, but the new album is coming” added the source.

Since the start of his career in the late 1960s, John has released 31 studio full lengths, the last of which was 2021s ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ that featured collaborations with Miley Cyrus, Stevie Wonder, Nicki Minaj and Brandi Carlile. That same year, he duetted with Dua Lipa on ‘Cold Heart’ and wrapped up the year by joining Ed Sheeran for the festive track ‘Merry Christmas’ before collaborating with Britney Spears on ‘Hold Me Closer’ in 2022.
