Baz Luhrmann's ‘Elvis’ soundtrack
According to multiple reports, the ‘Elvis’ soundtrack will feature previously unreleased “original songs and recordings” by Presley himself. Apart from this, the music lovers will get to hear songs from renowned artists such as Doja Cat, Eminem and Cee Lo Green, Jack White, Jazmine Sullivan, Kacey Musgraves, Les Greene, Stevie Nicks, Swae Lee, Diplo, and Tame Impala. Gary Clark Jr., Alton Mason, Lenesha Randolph, Maneskin, Nardo Wick, Paravi, Pnau, Rufus Thomas, Shonka Dukureh, and Yola will also show their skills on the soundtrack.
Musgraves had previously revealed she would be covering ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ for the soundtrack, whereas, Doja Cat’s ‘Hound Dog’-sampling “Vegas” has already been released as the project’s first single. Eminem too took to Instagram to tease his collaboration with CeeLo Green aptly titled ‘The King and I’. A few also questioned as to why rappers were roped in for a movie that is based on a rock icon but a majority of them were hyped for the soundtrack.
Speaking of the star cast, Butler will be joined by Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker; Olivia DeJonge as Priscilla Presley; Richard Roxburgh and Helen Thomson as Elvis’ father and mother; and Kelvin Harrison Jr. as BB King.
