Elton John & Taron Egerton Release New Song “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from The Motion Picture “Rocketman” Soundtrack
- English singer-songwriter Elton John and Welsh actor Taron Egerton appeared on the red carpet at the 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival to premiere their upcoming film “Rocketman” on May 16, 2019.
The film is based on the life of Elton John, directed by Dexter Fletcher, starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, and Bryce Dallas Howard.
In Addition, Elton John and Taron Egerton have released a new song “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from the film’s soundtrack.
It was written by Elton John and Elton’s long-time songwriting partner Bernie Taupin. Produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin.
The film is set to be released in the UK on May 22nd and North America on May 31st.
“It was so important that the music I composed and recorded had to be sung by Taron,” Elton John said in a recent statement. “I wanted his interpretation of me, through Bernie’s lyrics [and] my music — not just acting. I left Taron in the hands of Giles Martin, who I trusted implicitly because he’s brilliant. I didn’t want to be in Taron’s shadows, watching over the process, I trusted them to do what they needed to do, artistically, and listening back I’ve been astonished with the results. Getting the music right was the most important thing, as the songs in the film are integral to the story.”
