"And I guess that's why they call it the blues!" is a lyric from a famous Elton John song and the singer has gone on record to say that he is moving away from pop music in order to focus more on the blues. According to an interview with USA Today, Elton said, "I might collaborate with Lady Gaga or the Scissor Sisters on a single, but I'm not going to make pop albums anymore." He admitted that he loves electronic and dance music, but that he'll never be able to make that style of music because of his age. It's like a woman in her '50s wearing clothes from Forever 21. Elton said, "I'm 63 and too old. If I ever tried, I wouldn't be true to myself."
Elton John is nothing if not self-aware.
Are you excited to hear that Elton John is headed in a bluesier direction with his new music?
