Fans of Elton John's longtime collaborator, Bernie Taupin, are well aware that the legendary lyricist rarely gives interviews. However, in honor of John's 31st studio album The Diving Board (which will be available September 24), Taupin has decided to go on camera and talk about the set's highlights and his thoughts on various tracks.

If that weren't enough, Taupin is joined by The Diving Board's producer, the equally legendary T Bone Burnett, who shares his own reflections on the new songs. We at Yahoo Music are excited to present the first look at this interview; which, needless to say, is a must-see for any serious music fan. Enjoy!

The Diving Board can be pre-ordered at John's official site, with the option to receive a super-deluxe package containing a DVD with even more interview clips from Taupin and Burnett. John will be appearing Friday at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, held at Las Vegas's MGM Grand Garden Arena.
