NEW YORK – This time he's singing about an "East End Girl."
Billy Joel, who famously sang about Christie Brinkley in his hit "Uptown Girl," is releasing his first pop single in 14 years. "All My Life," which will be available on People magazine's Web site Feb. 7 and can be downloaded from iTunes starting Feb. 20, is a song he wrote as an anniversary present for his present wife, Katie Lee Joel. It also will be in stores later this year.
He recorded the song last year in Manhattan with producer Phil Ramone in honor of his wife, who hosted the first season of the Bravo TV series "Top Chef." She also writes a culinary and lifestyle column for Hamptons Magazine.
The couple were married in 2004 at Joel's mansion in Oyster Bay.
The Piano Man said fans of his pop music shouldn't get too excited about hearing more from him. He told Newsday that "All My Life" is the only pop song he has finished since his 1993 album "River of Dreams."
Joel will sing the national anthem at Sunday's Super Bowl and begins his latest tour Feb. 7 in Jacksonville, Fla.
