Hear New Elton John on Your iPod
I have been a long time Elton John fan, so I'm always on the lookout for his new musical endeavors. Of course, he has so many amazing classics that I would be hard-pressed to find anything that I didn't want to listen to, but I do love to hear his new stuff as well. I have to qualify that by saying that I was not a fan of The Lion King soundtrack in any way, but I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt on that one because it was a children's movie. It wasn't necessarily supposed to be a chart topping wonderful album full of hits, so no big deal.
The latest news for Elton John is that he is guesting on Alice in Chains' new album in three different collaborations. They specifically sent him the track to request his presence, and he was on board because he loved the way it sounded. This may be something that you would have never expected, which is precisely why I want to download this awesome album to my iPod as soon as it's available. Anyone else who's thinking what I'm thinking can look forward to the September 29 release. Can't wait!
