The official release of ELVIS, the long-awaited biopic from filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby, Romeo + Juliet) featuring Austin Butler playing the part of late music icon Elvis Presley, Olivia DeJonge as Priscilla Presley, and Tom Hanks as Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker is almost here -- and we now have a little more to chew on before it drops, specifically the soundtrack's contributors.
Some massive names have been tapped for the ELVIS soundtrack, with “original songs and recordings” coming from Stevie Nicks, Tame Impala, and Jack White. Also providing musical contributions to the flick are Måneskin, Eminem & Ceelo Green, Diplo, Denzel Curry, Jazmine Sullivan, Swae Lee, Chris Isaac, and Kacey Musgraves, who will cover The King's classic, “Can’t Help Falling In Love.” Your girl Doja Cat, currently recovering from tonsil surgery, is also featured on the soundtrack, supplying her single “Vegas” which samples Elvis’ iconic “Hound Dog.”
The film, set to hit theaters on June 24, will also feature several artists playing various musicians. British singer/songwriter Yola will play the role of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Gary Clark Jr., also featured on the soundtrack, will play the role of songwriter Arthur Crudup.
