Elton John has spoken out about what he thinks the “silver lining” to the self-isolating and physically distancing we are currently enduring due to the global pandemic.

Speaking to Apple’s Zane Lowe, Elton said: “Every cloud has a silver lining,”

“Maybe this will bring people together and [they’ll] be far more thoughtful about each other in a world where we’re so selfish - me included. And it gives us time to reflect on what life’s all about. And life is about love and sharing and generosity of spirit and coming together as one.”

He added that he’s been using the downtime to spend time with his two sons - one of the reasons he decided to embark on a farewell tour, which has been postponed. “To be honest with you, it’s great to be able to spend this much time with my boys,” John noted.
