Listening Party for New Elvis Album at Elvis Week 2015

"If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra," a new album featuring classic Elvis vocal performances with brand-new orchestral accompaniment, will be released worldwide on October 30, 2015. The album also features a duet with Michael Bublé, and appearances by Il Volo and Duane Eddy.


Fans attending Elvis Week 2015 at Graceland in Memphis can hear the new album exclusively at a listening party on Wednesday, August 12 at the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum at Graceland. Visit ElvisWeek.com for details.


An exciting revisit of Elvis’ work, "If I Can Dream" focuses on the iconic artist’s unmistakable voice, emphasizing the pure power of The King of Rock and Roll. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London with acclaimed producers Don Reedman and Nick Patrick, the 14-track album features Elvis’ most dramatic original performances augmented with lush new arrangements by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. 


“This would be a dream come true for Elvis,” Priscilla Presley says of the project. “He would have loved to play with such a prestigious symphony orchestra. The music…the force that you feel with his voice and the orchestra is exactly what he would have done.” 


The album features a scintillating duet with best-selling jazz-pop singer Michael Bublé on “Fever.” The album also includes additional contributions by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Duane Eddy adding his signature sound to “An American Trilogy” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and Italian operatic pop trio Il Volo lending their outstanding vocals to “It’s Now or Never.” "If I Can Dream" also highlights Elvis Presley’s diverse musical tastes and appreciation for great vocalists spanning a variety of genres from standards to opera.


"If I Can Dream" is part of the ongoing ELVIS 80th Birthday Celebration in 2015, which has been commemorated with a newly-redesigned website, www.ElvisTheMusic.com, the release of The Complete '60s Albums Collection Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 on iTunes (August 7), and the launch of Direct From Graceland: Elvis at the O2, the largest Elvis retrospective ever mounted in Europe.


"If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra" may be pre-ordered now on CD and 2LP.
