Rolling Stone Interviews Elton

Elton John has spent the past few years making mostly reflective and piano-based albums like 2010's Leon Russell collaboration, The Union, and 2013's sparse, somber The Diving Board. But when he got the urge to make a new album earlier this year, he decided to head in a radically different direction. "I was in Honolulu playing a show with my band, and I said to my guitarist Davey [Johnstone], 'Go out and buy 12-string guitars,'" he says. "'I want to hear lots of them on this record. We're going to make an up record.'"

In about a year and a half Elton John and Bernie Taupin will celebrate a rather stunning achievement: 50 years working together as a songwriting team.
