A brand new remix of ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again,’ Elton John’s collaboration with Taron Egerton from the soundtrack of the hit movie Rocketman, is now on release.
Composed by Elton and Bernie Taupin and produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin, the song is a duet between the superstar and the actor who portrays him in the “fantasy musical.” It featured on the soundtrack album, as the only track featuring John, and at the end of the film.
The track has now been remixed by Purple Disco Machine, and its release follows the three Golden Globe nominations announced for the film last week. The remixer is the Dresden-born artist, DJ and producer Tino Piontek, who has been building his reputation on the international dance music scene over the last ten years.
In 2017, Purple Disco Machine released his first album Soulmatic, which produced the hits ‘Body Funk’ and ‘Devil In Me,’ the latter featuring Joe Killington and Duane Harden. Another major dance favourite followed last year with ‘Dished (Male Stripper), which now has more than 15 million streams.
April saw the release of the first Purple Disco Machine mix compilation, Glitterbox – Discotheque, featuring his mixes of contemporary artists as well as time-honoured soul hits by Gladys Knight and the Pips, René and Angela and others. PDM’s remix of Dua Lipa’s ‘Don’t Start Now’ was released earlier this month, contributing to its huge worldwide success, which includes a recent No. 2 peak in the UK and No. 1 in Ireland.
As reported by uDiscover Music in November, Elton’s historic concert in Russia in 1979 will be released on album by UMe on 24 January as Live In Moscow. Elton’s three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour is currently in Brisbane, as part of the huge Australia/New Zealand itinerary which continues into March. He then resumes North American touring with a rescheduled date in Indianapolis on 26 March.
