T Bone Burnett: 'Elton's New Album is a Festival'
In a new interview with Billboard, Burnett says the pop-rock legend’s upcoming album is “beautiful,” describing it as “a very upbeat rock ‘n’ roll record.”
The acclaimed producer explains whereas The Diving Board “was a particular group of very personal material, this [new one] is broadcasting. That one was a parlor record; this is a festival.”
In addition to producing The Diving Board and Elton’s forthcoming project, Burnett also was behind the board for The Union, Elton’s 2010 collaborative album with Leon Russell.
