Taron Egerton will narrate the audiobook edition of Elton's forthcoming autobiography, Me.
The star of the movie Rocketman said he was "honoured" to record the audiobook, which will also feature Elton himself.
The actor said: "Elton John is a fascinating man, at times incredibly intimidating and yet very vulnerable; I have never met anyone like him. 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 honoured to have been asked to narrate Elton’s autobiography and I’m excited to get started."
Listeners will hear how the former Reg Dwight got clean and changed his life, found love with David Furnish and became a father. The audiobook, published by Pan Macmillan, will be available on the 15th of October, retailing at £13.99 for audio download edition, and £21.99 for audio CD edition.
Pre-orders for the book were launched on March 8, and within hours it had entered the Top 100 on Amazon and had hit the Number One spot in Popular Music.
