The news comes shortly after the five-time Grammy winner announced the release of “Turn the Lights Back On,” his first new single in over a decade.

Joel revealed that new music was on the way on Instagram on Monday by sharing a teaser trailer that unveiled the track’s title and its release date, set for Feb. 1.

“Turn the Lights Back On” marks the first new material from the singer-songwriter since 2007 — which is when he released "All My Life,” penned for then-wife Katie Lee, and "Christmas in Fallujah” with musician Cass Dillon.
