LISTEN: Elton John releases new song '(I'm gonna) love me again'

New 17/05/2019

Elton John and Bernie Taupin have written a brand new track for the upcoming biopic, 'Rocketman'. 

Titled '(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again', you can listen to the duet between John and movie star, Taron Egerton (who portrays John in the film), below.

The song features John and Egerton took turns to sing a verse before coming together for the choruses. It is also the only one on the soundtrack album where John's vocals are featured. Egerton sings most of the tracks by himself and other cast members join in wherever appropriate.

John insisted that Egerton should do his own singing because he felt that it would contribute a lot to his overall acting. "It was so important that the music I composed and recorded had to be sung by Taron,” John firmly explained. "I wanted his interpretation of me, through Bernie's lyrics and my music - not just acting."

The soundtrack album arrives on the 24th May, a few days earlier before the film hits New Zealand screens this 30th May with advanced screenings on 25th May.
