Honky Château is the fifth studio album by English musician Elton John. It was released in 1972, and was titled after the 18th century French chateau where it was recorded, Château d'Hérouville. The album reached number one in the US, the first of seven consecutive US number one albums for Elton John. In 2012, the album was ranked number 359 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. It was certified gold in July 1972 and platinum in October 1995 by the RIAA

Considerably lighter than Madman Across the Water, Honky Chateau is a rollicking collection of ballads, rockers, blues, country-rock, and soul songs. On paper, it reads like an eclectic mess, but it plays as the most focused and accomplished set of songs Elton John and Bernie Taupin ever wrote. The skittering boogie of "Honky Cat" and the light psychedelic pop of "Rocket Man" helped send Honky Chateau to the top of the charts, but what is truly impressive about the album is the depth of its material.

This album is dedicated to Catherine Philippe-Gérard. Sleeve design and inner sleeve photography (with thanks to David Larkham). Tony Hazzard by kind permission of Bronze Records Ltd.

Elton John set out to shock a few people with Honky Château. The dawn of 1972 had Elton making ever greater inroads into the American album rock market and the holy ground of FM radio. After the breakthrough of ‘Your Song’, the singles ‘Friends’, ‘Levon’ and ‘Tiny Dancer’ were more modest crossovers to AM pop radio in the US, but they were his pulse at a time when British acceptance of his sometimes introspective style was patchy at best. With the relocation to France came a resolve to sidestep the already well-worn singer-songwriter syndrome and to create a band vibe.

Elton John was well on his way to becoming a star when he released his fifth album, Honky Chateau, in May 1972. But nobody had an idea just how big of a star he'd become following the record's supernova climb up the charts. Several changes in John's approach to record-making probably had something to do with this. They appeared in bits and pieces on earlier records, but on Honky Chateau, the core quartet makes most of the sounds you hear (except for some horns, violins and synths used here and there).
