“Looking Up” – Elton John [YouTube Official Music Video]

ZUMIC RATING:

Editor’s note: Music video replaced audio stream on November 17, 2015

After 32 studio albums, Elton John is still a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. Today, we get a taste of what to expect from his upcoming LP, Wonderful Crazy Night. Listen and watch the official music video for “Looking Up” above, via Elton’s YouTube.

The song features an infectious blues / rock shuffle that’s upbeat and energetic. Elton’s fingers supply the piano notes, and Davey Johnstone’s sharp guitar riffs and brief but dynamic guitar solo give’s the song a strong rock and roll element. The lyrics are by longtime Elton John collaborator Bernie Taupin. If this track is any indication of what to expect from the album, then we’re in for a fun time!

The animated video features bursts of bright colors in various shapes and sizes while silhouette images of Elton dance across the screen. It’s fun and playful, totally fitting Elton John’s character!

Wonderful Crazy Night will be available February 5, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon (Vinyl, CD).

Elton also recently announced that he’ll be bringing his Million Dollar Piano show back to Las Vegas in 2016. For more information about that, as well as his latest music and news, check out his Zumic artist page.
