music news 18/06/2019

Elton John's biopic Rocketman would have to be one of the top films of 2019. Taron Egerton played the part of Elton perfectly, and sung all of our favourite Elton songs extremely well, while still adding his own flair.

But, in the closing credits of the film, you may have heard an Elton song that you weren't familiar with - and you would be right. 

Elton John & his long-time writing partner Bernie Taupin wrote a brand new song for Rocketman.

The 72-year-old pop icon told GMA that he had a duet with Egerton in mind when writing the song.

"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."

The music video is a flurry of bright colours and features some memorable clips from the film, as well as some old Elton clips.
