About the new album Sir Elton said: “The album is a celebration of our lives and our lifetimes, of our music and of the music we love. The Captain And The Kid” continues our story. You can’t look back, we’re looking ahead. I find the whole album to be so touching and beautiful for me because I’ve lived it. I lived it with Bernie and we’ve come through it. We’ve gone over the bridge and here we are at the other side”.
