Today on #RocketHour I’m joined by the wonderful @ollyyears! I’ve been a huge fan of Olly’s band @yearsandyears for a long time and more recently was blown away by his performance as Richie in #ItsASin. Tune in today on @applemusic where we will be talking about the show and sharing some of our favourite tracks ????
#ItsASin is one of the best things I’ve seen on television – ever! So it was great to have @ollyyears as my co-host for this week’s #RocketHour. Tune in to @applemusic on Saturday to hear the show and in the meantime, make sure you watch It’s A Sin on @hbomax in the US and @channel4 in the UK ????
Tune in today for #RocketHour! ???? This week I’m playing new music from @remiwolf @feelmybicep @sza and @finneas, alongside classics from the Isley Brothers, Stevie Wonder and The Men They Couldn't Hang.
Live now only on @applemusic
It’s that time of year again! David and I are happy to be part of this year’s #RedNoseDay campaign. These @Pixar character t-shirts are available now from @tkmaxxuk. They’re all wonderful, but our favourites are Buzz and Woody! Pick one up today and support a brilliant cause ???? #funnyispower
This week marks one year since @bernietaupinofficial and I won our first-ever Oscar together! ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ was picked as Best Original Song, the culmination of an incredible journey making @rocketmanmovie ???? #tbt
Getting vaccinated helps protect ourselves and the people we love. I am proud to join forces with Michael Caine to promote the fantastic @nhsengland #COVIDVaccine program, demonstrating how easy it is to get vaccinated and why it's so important. Let's all come together and do our bit in the fight against this wretched disease.

David has been nagging me to do an all-Canadian episode of #RocketHour, so this week I asked him to join me and we made it happen! ????????
We played music from Leonard Cohen, k.d. lang, Rush, Joni Mitchell and more, but there are so many great Canadian artists out there, we will have to do at least two more shows to fit them all in!
Listen back now, only on @applemusic ????
I met with @oliverdowden.mp today to discuss what can be done to solve the issues created for emerging artists by a lack of visa-free touring in Europe. It was a positive meeting and we both agree that there is lots to be achieved by working together to find a solution to the problem, providing opportunities for the next generation of musicians to tour the EU without prohibitive red tape
If there is one thing the #COVID19 pandemic has taught us, it’s that testing is critical to know your status so you can take action to protect yourself and others to save lives. The same goes for HIV. That’s why one of the headline recommendations in the #HIVCommission's report was for opt out testing in England so that we can reach #0HIVby30.
This week is National #HIVTestWeek in the UK. We want everyone to know how important it is, and how easy it is, to find out your status. There are many ways to access testing nowadays and self-testing at home couldn’t be easier. It is also the most convenient and safest way you can find out your status even now during the pandemic.
It is amazing how far we have come since the 80s and people can now live the full and healthy life that they were meant to. So please get tested, know your status, and if you need, get on treatment. @ejaf
Being a fan of Steven Wilson’s music, I was thrilled to be asked to be on “Personal Shopper”, a track from his new album “The Future Bites”. It’s doing really well and has just landed at No. 2 in the U.K. album chart. Check it out! ????????????
It’s A Sin is an incredibly moving account of the arrival of AIDS in the U.K. in the 1980’s. Watching it, so many sad and devastating memories came flooding back. Many people were callous, ignorant and cruel. Thank God we have come so far since then.
Hats off to @russelltdavies63 on creating this moving testament to a pivotal and important moment in LGBTQ history. The cast are sublime. Congratulations all round. A TRIUMPH of creativity and humanity.
Happy 80th birthday @neildiamond ????
Neil is one of the all-time great singer/songwriters and performers. He introduced me on stage at my first ever show in America, at @thetroubadour in LA, and wrote me this lovely note. That show changed my life and Neil was a huge part of it - I will never forget the kindness he showed me.
