Billy Joel releases first single in 17 years ‘Turn the Lights Back On’

Singer/musician Billy Joel, 74, has released his first new song in nearly two decades, “Turn the Lights Back On,” described as “a classic Billy Joel-style tune, embodying the hallmarks of his signature sound and ushering in the next chapter of his story.”

Announced in January, ‘Turn the Lights Back On’ was co-written with Arthur Bacon, Wayne Hector, and Freddy Wexler, latter of whom also served as producer of the track.

Joel’s last release was 1993’s River of Dreams, followed by the collection Fantasies & Delusions in 2001. His last standalone single, 2007’s “All My Life,” reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Singles Sales chart.
