A source said: “The past few years have given a new lease of life to Elton’s career. It started with his movie Rocketman and then Cold Heart with Dua Lipa took him to a new level, taking him to No. 1.

“A few years ago he said he wasn’t interested in making new music, but in the last 12 months things have changed. A new generation has fallen in love with him and he doesn’t has never been more in demand.

Throughout his career, Elton has released a staggering 31 studio albums, as well as a number of live and compilation records.

Speaking this month, Elton said: “I’ve been in this industry for a long time, over 50 years. Even after all this time, there’s still the absolute thrill when you hear your new music playing on the internet. air for the very first time. The fact that I can reach a whole new generation of listeners is very special to me.

But he’s not done promoting his latest album yet, as his next single is set to be his crazy song from the Nicki Minaj and Young Thug album, Always Love You.

A source added: “The date has been pushed back several times but the label is keen to make Always Love You a single. It’s all a moving picture, but with Elton hitting the UK show streak in June, a summer release would make sense.

Explaining why he remains silent about his private life, he told WSJ magazine: “People expect so much to be given to them.

“If you don’t post all the time about what you do, how you spend a day, or how you made breakfast, does that make you a recluse?”

Sam soon on the song

There’s only one week left until there’s new music from Sam Smith.

The four-time Grammy winner has announced that lead single Love Me More, from an as yet untitled fourth album, will be released at 11 p.m. next Thursday.

I told this month how Sam secretly filmed the accompanying music video in south London, much to the chagrin of some locals.

Fingers crossed this one is a return to form after an 18 month wait for new hardware.

Mick: We’ll keep rolling

THE ROLLING STONES are determined to keep moving, insisting that their upcoming shows won’t be their last.

Sir Mick Jagger said: “I don’t foresee this being the last tour. I love being on tour. I don’t think I would if I didn’t like it.

“I like to go on stage and do my stuff. That’s what I do. I want everyone to have fun and forget about the problems in their life for a few hours and relax and have a good afternoon and a good evening.

Mick, who kicks off the band’s Sixty tour in Spain on May 1, also said he’s happy to finally see talented rock bands rise through the ranks.

Speaking on Swedish radio station P4, he added: “In rock music you need energy and there haven’t been many new rock singers. Now there are a few.

“You have Yungblud and Machine Gun Kelly. This kid with a post-punk vibe makes me think there’s still some life in rock and roll.

JESSIE J confirmed her romance with basketball player Chanan Colman with a PDA-filled lunch in Los Angeles.

I am thrilled that Jessie has found someone special after a difficult few months in her personal life.

WHY WE LOVE TO GO WITH THE FLO

WATCHING Florence Welch do her thing on stage is a little weird – one minute she’s tiptoeing and gracefully waving her arms like a fairy tale creature and the next she’s running up and down like she’s possessed .

It’s an act that has kept her popular for over a decade, but with this first London show in three years, she’s refreshed and ready to go with more enthusiasm than ever.

The Shake It Out set opener reminded everyone why they were there – for soulful, ethereal, distinctive, otherworldly vocals and bloody good songs.

“London, did you come here to sit down?” she shouted over her upbeat new single My Love, which is so good it’s sure to be a staple in her set for years to come.

She shook the balcony as the crowd jumped, but the quieter moments were just as special, with a catchy rendition of 2011 single Never Let Me Go being a highlight.

Florence is one of a handful of female actors to top the line-up at male-dominated festivals, and with shows like this, she deserves to stay there.
