The Diving Board is the 31st studio album by Elton John. It is his 30th solo album and the second of his studio releases since 1979's Victim of Love without any of his regular band members. The album debuted at number three on the UK Album Chart behind Indie Rock band The Arctic Monkeys at number one and Swedish dance music producer Avicii at number two.
The album's premiere single "Home Again" was released on 24 June 2013, the same day the album became available for pre-order. On 28 August 2013, a video for "Mexican Vacation (Kids in the Candlelight)" was released on YouTube, which acted as the album's second single.
The album was written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin and produced in Los Angeles by The Union producer T-Bone Burnett. Burnett suggested that John return to the piano, bass and drums format of his very early years and the result, John says, is "the most exciting solo record I've done in a long, long time."
