The King receives some heavenly accompaniment

Overseen by Priscilla Presley, who says her husband would have loved the idea, this project sets 14 Elvis vocals to an orchestral re-wiring of the original music. It’s skilfully executed, with each arrangement sitting smoothly against that remarkable voice. From the restrained glide of “Love Me Tender” to the sumptuous, rollicking rumble of “Burning Love”, the Royal Philharmonic’s precision and elegance bring fresh vibrancy to the songs without ever smothering The King.
