Elton John and Taron Egerton drop music video for original Rocketman duet

Elton John and Taron Egerton drop music video for original Rocketman duet

If you’re a fan of the new Elton John biopic Rocketman, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a new music video for one of the original songs in the film.

Sir Elton John announced the new music video on his Twitter account, saying that the film clip for the original song (I’m Gonna) Love Me Again is now on YouTube. 

The music video features clips from the original film and is from the closing credits of Rocketman.

Sir Elton John is played by Taron Egerton, who has received nothing but praise for his role in the film.

The new song was written by Sir Elton John as well as his writing partner of more than 50 years, Bernie Taupin. 

The 72-year-old told GMA that he had a duet with Taron Egerton in mind.

"I wanted to write a song that Taron and I could sing," he said. 

"It's really fantastic. I'm so happy. It sounds like an old end of ‘60s, early ‘70s song.

"He sings it brilliantly, and I'm glad we've got something on record together."

Rocketman's music producer, Giles Martin, revealed back in February to Stuff when promoting the film that Elton thought 29-year-old Egerton sang his songs better than anyone. 

"Elton said, 'I don't think I have heard anyone sing my songs better than Taron'," Martin revealed.

"And the great thing about Elton is he wants Taron's interpretations of his songs."
