News From Graceland
New Elvis Gospel Album to be Released This August
Lisa Marie Presley Sings Duet with Her Father on Album's Title Track
Groundbreaking New Elvis Album features 14 Original Performances of Gospel Songs with Newly-Recorded Instrumentation and Backing Vocals featuring Legendary Presley Alumnae including Darlene Love, Cissy Houston, The Imperials and The Stamps
"Elvis Presley - Where No One Stands Alone," a new Elvis album celebrating the artist's everlasting love of gospel music, will be released on Friday, August 10.
Produced by Joel Weinshanker, Lisa Marie Presley and Andy Childs, "Elvis Presley - Where No One Stands Alone" introduces newly-recorded instrumentation and backing vocal contributions from music legends who performed on-stage and/or in-the-studio with Elvis. It also includes a reimagined duet with Elvis and his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, on the album’s title track and spiritual touchstone.
"It was a very powerful and moving experience to sing with my father," wrote Lisa Marie in her notes for the album. "The lyrics speak to me and touch my soul. I’m certain that the lyrics spoke to my father in much the same way."
Background vocalists on the album include: Darlene Love (who first sang with Elvis on his 1968 NBC television special); Dr. Cissy Houston (who, with The Sweet Inspirations, sang with Elvis on-stage beginning in 1969); Terry Blackwood, Armond Morales and Jim Murray (members of The Imperials, who sang on Elvis' "How Great Thou Art" – with the title song winning the 1967 GRAMMY for Best Sacred Performance); and Donnie Sumner, Bill Baize, Ed Hill and Larry Strickland (members of Presley's longtime backup group, The Stamps).
