Taupin Has Written Lyrics For a Portion of Upcoming ''Rocketman'' Movie

Written by Chief Editor.

Bernie Taupin has penned new lyrics for a song to play over the end credits of the upcoming Rocketman biopic.

“Making music is just what we do,” he told Rolling Stone magazine. “I can’t understand why someone like Billy Joel stopped. It just makes no sense to me, but that is his business and I respect his wishes. But we just have to do it. It’s a God-given blessing that enables us to still be able to create. We’re going to take advantage of it as long as we can.”

Rocketman is expected to hit cinemas on May 31, 2019. Jamie Bell will play Bernie.
