The soundtrack to the Elton John bio-pic Rocketman will be out this month.
Set for release on May 24th, Rocketman: Music From the Motion Picture, contains 21 Elton classics reworked by producer and composer Giles Martin with vocals by actor Taron Egerton, who portrays Elton in the film.
There is also one new Elton and Bernie Taupin composition, "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again," performed by Elton and Taron.
Elton says, "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’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.”
The first single is the title track.Rocketman opens in theaters on May 31st.
