Last month, previously unseen footage was released on Valentines day for the track “Harmony”, the fourth track from the album. It’s a stunning period-piece put together from tour footage recently discovered in the attics of Elton John’s former tour managers Marvin Tabolsky and John Babcock, and it even captures a filmed meeting between Elton John and Stevie Wonder.
