Purple Disco Machine

The Purple Disco Machine remix of ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ has been unveiled today and is available now at all digital retailers. Listen to the remix HERE.

An Academy Awards shortlisted, Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award nominated song, the original version of ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ was written especially for the ‘Rocketman’ soundtrack by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, and performed by Elton and Taron Egerton. The original version is featured on the GRAMMY nominated Top 5 album ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ (out now on Interscope Records) and played out over the movie’s closing credits. With his remix, Purple Disco Machine gracefully transforms ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ into a joyous, slinky disco groove, keeping Elton and Taron’s show-stopping vocals and the track’s Motown inspired soul at its core.

Epic musical fantasy ‘Rocketman’ was greeted by a wealth of critical and commercial success upon its release in May and shows no sign of slowing down as it heads into awards season. Having already taken more than $195 million in global box office, it has been shortlisted for two Academy Awards for Makeup and Hairstyling, and Music (Original Song). Rocketman has also been nominated for three Golden Globe Awards for Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), Best Original Song and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy). It has also garnered nominations for three Critics’ Choice Awards and its soundtrack has also been nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media.

Elton says “Bernie and I wanted to celebrate the nominations for “I’m Gonna Love Me Again”.  I’m so happy that Purple Disco Machine was able to come to the party with a fabulous new remix. I’m a massive fan of his work.”

The release caps off a year which has been truly astonishing in its breadth of achievements, even by Elton John’s standards. Alongside Rocketman’s ongoing success, 2019 has seen the release of Elton’s first autobiography ‘Me’. It has already amassed global sales in excess of 700,000 copies to date, topping bestseller charts around the world in the process and garnering widespread acclaim with critics heralding it as a genre-defining rock memoir. Reaching the top 5 of the UK Charts, the GRAMMY® nominated album ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ saw producer Giles Martin reimagine Elton’s unparalleled back catalogue to fit Rocketman’s narrative, working with the filmmakers on the production and pulling a vocal masterclass from Taron in the studio. September 2019 saw The Royal Mail issue a set of 12 stamps as a tribute to Elton being one of the most popular and enduring music artists of all time. Elton is one of only two individual music artists to be featured in a dedicated stamp issue. In June 2019 President Emmanuel Macron presented Elton the Légion d’honneur, France’s highest award, for his lifetime contribution to the arts and the fight against HIV/AIDS. Elton’s ongoing Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour was named Billboard’s Top Rock Tour in May 2019, the accolade coming a year after Billboard named Elton as the most successful male solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 chart history.
