The Piano Man from Long Island is set to release his first new pop single in 30 years next Friday!
In 2007, Joel released “All My Life,” a jazzy number with whiffs of Frank Sinatra.
He has otherwise steered clear of new music — outside of classical releases — for the last three decades, even as he has often performed concerts and established a long-running residency at Madison Square Garden.
Joel stopped releasing pop music in 1993 after he released “River of Dreams.”
According to a news release, the new song, titled “Turn the Lights On,” includes the lyric “Did I wait too long … to turn the lights back on?”
And if this isn’t enough, Billy will perform a melody of his hits and the new song at The Grammy Awards on February 4th! Here’s hoping for a little “Uptown Girl.”
