Elton John Reveals New Album Cover

Elton John

The last time Elton John released an album, it was a collaborative work with pianist, singer-songwriter and musical hero Leon Russell. It got great reviews and was hailed as a creative comeback for John, whose records have been hit-and-miss since his peak commercial days.

The 66-year-old singer is getting ready to release his 30th album in a few months. It’s called ‘The Diving Board,’ and John gave a glimpse of the LP’s cover on Facebook today. The stark artwork features a fully clothed man preparing for a jump in what appears to be an ocean.

Not much else has been confirmed about the upcoming record, besides information regarding the pre-sale on June 24. But rumors have circulated about the album for more than a year now. It was originally scheduled for release in 2012, but it was pushed back by John’s record company. Since then, the singer has returned to the studio and reworked some of the songs and the album’s concept with producer T Bone Burnett.

Longtime partner Bernie Taupin supposedly helped pen ‘The Diving Board”s songs, some of which — at least in the album’s original form — were tied together thematically by music and narrative scope. No word yet if the record’s original concept will end up on the album when it’s released later this year. We’re betting on September for a release date.
