Billy Joel is dropping his new single this morning.
The beloved rocker hasn’t made a real record in 31 years, so “Turn the Lights Back On” is an event.
But there is no new album, friends. I’m sad to report that this is a one-off single, a little gift for fans. Billy does not have 12 more songs ready for a collection. Maybe if the response to “Lights” is really overwhelming, something can be done.
Exclusive: I can tell you that Billy will close the Grammys on Sunday night with “Turn the Lights Back On” and one of his big hits. It will not be “Piano Man,” although I’m told everyone with the show asked him to sing it. The whole arena would sing along! But it will be another of his many hits. I know which one but why give it away now.
Billy is wrapping up his 150 shows at Madison Square Garden in July. That will be a huge night, I’m sure. But New York fans may want to stop in on March 28th. That’s when I’m told the show will be filmed for posterity and for a documentary about this extraordinary run!
Come back here at 9am for a first listen to “Turn the Lights Back On.”
