Elton Planning a Solo Covers Album Next
In an entertaining Q&A session hosted by U.K.-based broadcaster Paul Gambaccini, John also held forth on Christmas albums ("My record company in America asked me to do a Christmas record and I just told them to fuck off"), videos ("I fucking hate videos") and even which of his songs would be the best introduction to his music for a 6-year-old ("Just show him 'The Lion King'").
John said he plans to tour with Russell next year and hopes to make another record with him if "The Union" is a success. He also plans to do a solo covers album in the near future.
UPDATE (10/07) : The album is expected to be produced by T Bone, and an orchestra will be utilised. It will be recorded live over three days and will be obscure 50's and 60's tunes.
Stay tuned for more info.
