Elton John is gearing up to release his 30th studio album, which is also his first solo release in seven years. Now the 66-year-old singer is giving fans the opportunity to listen early.

"The Diving Board" will be out Sept. 24, but head over to Amazon to stream the album in its entirety. "Board" features John reteaming with longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin and "The Union" producer T-Bone Burnett. The record has gone through many adjustments, including a title change and a second round in the studio for John.

The album's lead single, "Home Again," was released in June. The newest, "Mexican Vacation (Kids in the Candlelight)," debuted a few weeks ago. In addition to producing, Burnett takes up guitar duty on the new project, as does R&B singer Raphael Saadiq.

John has a big month ahead of him. Just days before the release of "Board," the singer will perform a tribute to Liberace at the Emmy Awards and headline the iHeartRadio festival.
