Billy Joel has put his retirement plans on hold to record a new love song for St Valentine's Day (14FEB07).
The rocker insisted he wouldn't pen anymore pop tunes after releasing his RIVER OF DREAMS album in 1993 but the most romantic day of the year has brought him back.
His new single, ALL MY LIFE, is being released as a download next week (07FEB07) on website People.com.
The tune will then be sold exclusively via Apple's iTunes Music Store from 20 February (07).
In the past decade, Joel has only written classical compositions, although he continues to tour and perform his hits.
February is going to be a big month for Billy Joel - he'll perform the US National Anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday (04FEB07) in Miami, Florida.
