Welsh actor Taron Egerton, released a music video this week for "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again", a duet with the inspiration taken from his most recent role, Elton John.

Written by Sir Elton John along with longtime co-writer Bernie Taupin the song was originally written for the film 'Rocketman' which is based on Elton's music career.

The colourful '70's pop art' style video features archived footage of Sir Elton performing, along with clips of Taron playing Elton in the film.

Elton John is very much 'still standing' as he heads to Cardiff City Stadium tomorrow as part of his 'Yellow Brick Road' tour.

This tour is said to be his final tour. It only features two UK dates, Cardiff and Dublin, before he travels to other venues in Europe and on to America.

Taron has previously joined Sir Elton on stage when they performed 'Your Song' together in Hove in Sussex.


As they are both currently in the UK, press speculate Taron will return to his homeland of Wales to join Elton on stage in Cardiff to perform their new hit.

Taron, originally from Aberystwyth is very proud of his Welsh routes and sang a rendition of the Welsh hymn 'Calon Lân' on 'The Tonight Show' with Jimmy Fallon.
