Elton’s Calling It The Blues!

By on 19 October, 2010

Elton John has reportedly ruled out recording any more pop albums, because he wants to devote the rest of his career to tackling the blues.

The Rocket Man singer reveals working with piano legend Leon Russell on new album The Union has made Elton realise he’s too old for the mainstream charts.

And, despite being one of the biggest pop stars of all time, he’s turning his back on the genre.

Speaking to USA Today, he says:

“I’ve never had such a personal experience making a record (as The Union) and it’s given me verification that what I should do in the future is make records like this.

“I might collaborate with Lady Gaga or the Scissor Sisters on a single, but I’m not going to make pop albums anymore.”
