Lisa Marie to release Elvis remix song
A new video of Lisa Marie Presley singing In the Ghetto, accompanied in the remix by her dead father, Elvis Presley, will be posted on the internet.

To mark the 30th anniversary of her father's death, Lisa Marie Presley's voice was added to the original version of her father's hit song from 1969. The video duet features Presley and images of her late father.


It will be posted on the AOL internet site Spinner.com, a company spokesman said.

The transcript of an interview with Lisa Marie Presley, will also be posted, AOL spokesman Kurt Patat said. In the interview, Lisa Marie Presley said the project was emotionally stirring.

"We had two hours to lay down my vocals," she says in the interview transcript. "So the next morning, I heard the rough ... and ... I've never cried when I've done anything ... ever ... but I just lost it when I heard it.

"It's pretty organic. There are no bells and whistles - they just added me into the original recording."

Lisa Marie Presley also talks in the interview about how she was offended to see her father's song, Viva Las Vegas used in a Viagra commercial.

"I find that revolting," she said. "Some songs we have no control over. I know we didn't licence that one."

Proceeds from the new song and video will be used to help build temporary housing for the homeless in New Orleans, she said. The project is to be similar to Presley Place, a 12-unit apartment building for the homeless built in Memphis by Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc in 2001.

At the time, Elvis Presley Enterprises was owned by Lisa Marie. She sold 85 per cent of the company two years ago to CKX Inc, which now controls the worldwide business in marketing Elvis' name and image.

Elvis Presley died at his Memphis home, Graceland, on August 16, 1977, and thousands of fans are in town this week for the 30th anniversary of his death.

Lisa Marie Presley, 39, is scheduled to attend a concert in Memphis on Thursday that will feature her father performing on video, with live support from his former backup singers and band members.

Her most recent album of her own music was Now What in 2005, but she said in the interview that she hopes to put out a new album soon.

"I'm definitely going to do it," she said. "I just have to figure out the right way. I'm on a clean slate right now - I just got off my label (Capitol Records). So I'm figuring out my next route."Image

I hope that In The Ghetto will be on cd or dvd as that would be nice to have...like a slide show I think it sounds.
I hope I am able to go to Graceland when they have him in hologram form for visitors to see and hear. Imagine seeing him sitting at the piano playing, looking down from the upstairs landing, greeting his guests below! I want to see that! When they can have him in people's living rooms-wow...I would like to buy that set up! Not in my time probably, but it's coming! wjh
