Rebecca Taylor/MSGAfter some tweaking and re-tweaking, Elton John's new album The Diving Board is finally ready, and may be released in September.
Rolling Stone reports that Elton hosted a listening party for the album Friday in L.A., and told those assembled that The Diving Board is "the most adult record I can make at my age," and that it's also "the most piano-orientated record I've ever made." The 13-track album features songs co-written with Elton's longtime creative partner Bernie Taupin, and produced by T Bone Burnett, who also produced Elton's acclaimed album with Leon Russell, The Union.
As for what it sounds like, Elton described The Diving Board as "everything I love about American music:" a mix of gospel, blues, jazz, brass band music, pop and a waltz.
Here's the track listing:
"Oceans Away""Oscar Wilde Gets Out""A Town Called Jubilee""The Ballad of Blind Tom""My Quicksand""Can't Stay Alone Tonight""Voyeur""Home Again""Take This Dirty Water""The New Fever Waltz""Mexican Vacation (Kids in the Candlelight)""Candlelit Bedroom""The Diving Board"

The Loop was born in 1977, out of a goofy station that had all girl DJs and played sappy "Adult Rock." In '79, an eccentric Hawaiian guy bought the station and brought in guys like Steve & Garry, Sky Daniels, and a dozen or so other misfits. First order of business was losing the James Taylor and pumpin' out Nugent, Zeppelin, and everything that rocked… blowing up the disco records… and the rest is history. Amazingly, the Loop is still alive, and intends to be for a long time. So get used to it.
