The Rocket/Island set is a sequel to the artist's 1975 album Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy. First single "The Bridge" will be available August 22 from Apple's iTunes Music Store.

"It was [Sanctuary Group CEO Merck Mercuriadis's] idea, because he said, 'You're always saying how [songwriting partner] Bernie [Taupin] has become the Brown Dirt Cowboy'--he lives on a ranch in Santa Ynez [Calif.]--and I'm this guy who plays concert after concert, buying art, buying photographs, living a very lavish lifestyle," John told Billboard. "I've become Captain Fantastic."

John will premiere the material at an intimate September 6 show at Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City. Members of John's Rocket Club have first crack at tickets starting Friday, August 11, via
