Lisa Marie Presley Releases Duet With Her Dad

Elvis’ daughter went back to a 1956 album to remake a single that’s being released this week.

Been a while since you've heard Elvis Presley on the radio?

As a special gift to Elvis' legion of passionate fans, his daughter, Lisa Marie, rerecorded the song "I Love You Because," from the King's very first album, to be played during the 35th anniversary of her father's death this past August. But the song and its accompanying video—a duet between father and daughter—were such a hit during the Elvis Week celebration that Lisa Marie is releasing the single to iTunes today (Oct. 16). The video will premiere on CMT on Thursday (Oct. 18).

While it's a touching tribute to her superstar father, it also dovetails nicely with Lisa Marie's foray into country music. She released the Americana album Storm & Grace, produced by T Bone Burnett, in May and made her Grand Ole Opry debut in August. She will return to Music City next month as part of a two-week tour that kicks off Nov. 2 in Tunica, Miss.
