When Elton John releases his next album One Direction have nothing to worry about. “I’m not going to be chasing One Direction up the charts. I’m just making music I feel good about,” says Sir Elton.

Elton john will release ‘The Diving Board’ in September. ‘The Diving Board’ is his first album of new material since 2006.

Elton’s last album was ‘The Captain and the Kid’ seven years ago. It was his sequel to the classic 1975 record ‘Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy’.

For ‘The Diving Board’ Elton explains “I had to go back to go forward’.

“On the first three days of recording, in 2012, [Bernie and I] wrote 11 songs,” he says. “All the tracks on the first session were done in five days. We went back this year and Bernie wrote some additional lyrics. I chose four and they were written and recorded in two days.”

The title track refers to Elton’s own description of “the price of fame”.

Elton recently released the ‘Good Morning To The Night’ album with PNAU. The album was a reinterpretation of his music by PNAU. He also appears on new albums by Queens of the Stone Age and Fall Out Boy.

‘The Diving Board’ will be released in Australia on September 13.
