Elton still tops after 20 years

July 23, 2012

Pop icon claims top spot with 'Good Morning To The Night'.

LONDON: Flamboyant British pop icon Elton John yesterday scored his first number one album in his home country for over 20 years, his seventh in total.

The bespectacled pianist claimed the official top spot with “Good Morning To The Night”, a collaboration with Australian duo Pnau.

The antipodean pair have reworked John’s early 1970s hits as dance anthems, giving him his first chart-topper since releasing the “Very Best of Elton John” in 1990.

The knighted star, who is 65, recently released a book detailing his personal connection to AIDS and his fight against the disease through his Elton John AIDS Foundation. —AFP
