Taron Egerton, who starred as Elton John in the biopic Rocketman, is set to narrate the audiobook of John’s memoir Me. In addition to Egerton, John himself will appear on the 13-hour audiobook of his “first and only autobiography.”
“Elton John is a fascinating man, at times incredibly intimidating and yet very vulnerable; I have never met anyone like him,” Egerton said in a statement. “I was passionate about my role as Elton in the movie Rocketman and this feels like the perfect closing chapter to the whole experience. I am honored to have been asked to narrate Elton’s autobiography and I’m excited to get started.”
Out Oct. 15 via Henry Holt & Co., the “no-holds-barred” autobiography will follow John's life and career, tracing his rise to fame. The book will further discuss John’s road to sobriety and his relationship and family with David Furnish.
Me is now available to pre-order.
