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" is a song he wrote as an anniversary present for his current wife, Huntington native Katie Lee Joel.

The song will be in stores later this year. It will be available on People magazine's Web site February Seventh and can be downloaded from iTunes starting February 20th.

Joel recorded it 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 two were married in 2004.

The Piano Man says 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 February Seventh in Jacksonville, Florida.
