Watch Elton John Perform New Song, "Mexican Vacation (Kids in the Candlelight)"

Universal MusicElton John doesn't appear in the official video for his latest single, "Home Again," which premiered last week, but now you can see the pop-rock legend perform another of the songs from his upcoming album, The Diving Board, in a new clip that's been posted online.  The black-and-white video, which you can see at RollingStone.com, features Elton playing "Mexican Vacation (Kids in the Candlelight)" in front of a small audience at Capitol Studios in Los Angles.

The clip, shot a few months ago at a special showcase celebrating The Diving Board's impending release, features John singing and playing piano while accompanied by veteran R&B singer/producer Raphael Saadiq on bass, Jay Bellerose on drums, Keefus Ciancia on keyboards and a trio of backing vocalists.  Elton delivers some gritty singing and classic barrelhouse piano on the up-tempo, soulful tune.

"Mexican Vacation (Kids in the Candlelight)" is one of 12 new compositions John co-wrote with his longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin that appear on The Diving Board.  The album, produced by T Bone Burnett, will be released on September 24.
