Tasked with taking Elton’s unparalleled back catalogue and reimagining it to fit the film’s narrative, ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ producer Giles Martin worked closely with the filmmakers, supervising all of the music for the production and pulling a vocal masterclass from Taron in the studio. From transforming ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ into an epic ensemble piece, to morphing ‘I Want Love’ into a heart-breaking moment of conflict around little Reggie’s family meal, each track has been sculpted to form a unique part of the narrative of this most incredible of stories. The album is produced by Giles Martin (except “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” co-produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin) and was recorded between 2017 and 2019 at Abbey Road Studios and AIR Studios in London. Executive Album Producers are Elton John, David Furnish, Matthew Vaughn and Dexter Fletcher.
