Tom Grennan has admitted it feels "pretty mad" to have Sir Elton as a fan.
The singer can't quite get his head around the pop legend "appreciating" his music, but explained while it is a huge deal, he is trying to stay grounded.
Appearing on online music TV show Red Stripe Presents: This Feeling TV, he said: "It's pretty mad. I'm just a boy from Bedford who grew up in a normal life. So it's humbling and unusual. Especially Elton John.
The 23-year-old released his debut album Lighting Matches earlier this month.
