Elton John's Your Song celebrated in new Rocketman video

The latest video taken from the Elton John biopic Rocketman features his classic track Your Song.

Taron Egerton stars in the leading role, with the new clip showing him as Elton sitting behind a piano at home and playing Your Song for the first time while Jamie Bell, who plays Bernie Taupin, looks on.

The footage then cuts to the studio, showing Elton laying down the track which went on to appear on his 1970 self-titled album.
