Columbia Records will release “All My Life,” the long-awaited new pop single from the iconic singer/songwriter/performer Billy Joel. “All My Life” is Billy’s first new pop music since his 5x platinum Grammy-nominated album, River of Dreams, was released in 1993.
“All My Life” was recorded at New York’s Legacy Recording Studios and produced by longtime musical associate Phil Ramone, who first worked with Billy on the artist’s 1977 breakout album, The Stranger, and shared Grammy Awards with Billy for 1978’s Song of the Year, “Just The Way You Are,” and 1979’s Album of the Year, 52nd Street.
Written as Billy’s anniversary present to his wife, Katie Lee Joel, the romantic “All My Life” will premiere exclusively on People magazine’s online homepage, People.com, the week leading into Valentine’s Day (February 7 – February 14), where it may streamed or incorporated into a Valentine’s Day e-card for everyone’s special someone.
“All My Life” will be available as an exclusive download on iTunes from February 20 – March 6 before becoming more widely available online through a variety of digital services.
The track will be commercially available as a ringtone/ringback beginning February 20 with a commercial CD single of “All My Life” to follow.
Billy Joel will perform the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLI on February 4, 2007, marking Billy’s second time performing anthem at the Super Bowl.
