Good news everyone, Elton John's heading off to write some new music

He released his last album in 2016.

Elton John has done everyone a solid and decided to head off to Australia and write some more music.

How very good of him.

The 'Tiny Dancer' singer dropped his last studio album, Wonderful Crazy Night, in 2016.

It was the 30th studio release of his career, and although one might think that 30 records would be enough for one man, it appears as though it simply is not.

Because Elton's heading off to Australia to record some new tunes - and that's the best place for it, apparently.

The 72-year-old icon told Capital FM that he doesn't write music half as much as he used to, and that a lot of his recent work has actually been scrapped because it was simply "not meant to be."

“I don’t write very often," he said. "I write after every two years. In the early days, it was every other week."

“I’m writing in Australia when I’m going to be there. I haven’t written an album for two or three years, three or four years, so I’m looking forward to writing.

“I never know what to expect, that’s the great thing about writing with this style. I never know what I’m going to get. So the process has never gotten dull."

Elton added that he thinks people have been "lazy" when listening to his new music, as they presume that it's never going to be as good as the classics.

"You know, you make so many albums and people say, 'well the albums are not as good as they used to be,'" he said.

“People are very lazy, they don’t listen, and some of the things I’ve done on the last three or four records are some of my finest things."

“When I do stop touring and I do decide to do a concert again somewhere, they will be the sort of songs I will be playing."

We're alright with that, man.
