The new record called The Diving Board will be released on September 16 2013.
This will break the seven year absence from the charts for Sir Elton, as his last album The Captain and the Kid was released way back in 2006. It will also mark the THIRTIETH solo studio album for the 66-year-old superstar diva.
The trailer for the album was released on Monday and features the first single “Home Again” in the background.
It also shows the father of two talking about this new project; “I feel like I’m starting again making records. What kind of music do I really want to make?” John questions, before asserting, “I am on the diving board.”
He also said that he felt the need to look back to get the sound for this project.
"I needed to strip away the excesses and get back to the core of what I do as an artist. That’s what ‘The Diving Board’ represents. I’m incredibly excited about every aspect of this album."

The Diving Board will be available in multiple formats: Standard, Deluxe, Super-Deluxe and a 180-gram 2-Disc Vinyl set.
The Deluxe physical and digital packages will feature a bonus track from the album sessions. This is also along three live tracks recorded by Elton and The Diving Board's musicians during a special evening of music and conversation that took place at the famed Capitol Studios in April.
The Super-Deluxe package will arrive in a specially-designed and embossed box. It will include the Deluxe CD and 180-gram Vinyl versions of the album, a DVD of the Capitol Records Studios performances and behind-the-scenes, a case-bound photo book and exclusive art print.
