Legacy to release new Elvis album with Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Legacy are proud to announce that ‘If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’ will be released worldwide on October 30th.
As an exciting revisit of Elvis’ work, ‘If I Can Dream’ was 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, plus a duet with Michael Buble and appearances by Il Volo and Duane Eddy.
“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.” Don Reedman also commented, “Abbey Road Studios and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are as good as it gets and Elvis deserves as good as it gets.”
‘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.
UK fans can get their hands on a super deluxe version of ‘If I Can Dream’ with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra that includes three extra tracks on two vinyl, CD, a poster and a 12″ booklet – all in a beautiful box.
