Elton John may have retired from touring, but he’s evidently far from being done making new music.
On Friday, John inducted his musical partner Bernie Taupin into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and revealed that they’d recently completed a brand new LP.
“We’ve just finished an album in Los Angeles,” he said at the podium, “which is going to surprise the shit out of you — oh I can’t swear! And it’s absolutely wonderful. It’s full of youth and it’s full of vitality, and it’s a wonderful place to be after we’ve been together for 56 years.”

In 2022, John released “Hold Me Closer” with Britney Spears, a track that included elements of “Tiny Dancer,” “The One” and “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.” It reached No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“We climbed mountains that we never thought were possible to climb,” John said of he and Taupin at the Rock Hall ceremony, “and we scaled heights that we never thought were possible to scale…”
