Elton John has released “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again,” a duet with Taron Egerton. The song is featured on the upcoming album Rocketman: Music From the Motion Picture, due for release on May 24. The song, written by John and Bernie Taupin, will appear in John’s biopic Rocketman, co-produced by Greg Kurstin and Giles Martin, and run over the film’s closing credits. “I’m gonna love me again, check in on my very best friend,” John and Egerton sing in chorus. Egerton portrays John in the biopic, which opens in theaters on May 31. “It was so important that the music I composed and recorded had to be sung by Taron. I wanted his interpretation of me, through Bernie [Taupin]’s lyrics and my music – not just acting. I left Taron in the hands of [producer and composer] Giles Martin, who I trusted implicitly because he’s brilliant,” Elton told Rolling Stone. He added, “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.” Copyright(c) 2019 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
