Eminem, Stevie Nicks and more have been announced on the Elvis soundtrack – Music News

Eminem, Stevie Nicks, Jack White and more will appear on the soundtrack for ‘Elvis’.

The highly anticipated Elvis Presley biopic – which has been directed by Baz Luhrmann and stars Austin Butler as the late King of Rock and Roll – is set to be released next month, and details for the accompanying soundtrack have been unveiled.

The ‘Lose Yourself’ rapper, Fleetwood Mac legend, ‘Seven Nation Army’ hitmaker and leading man Butler will all appear alongside “original songs and recordings” by Presley himself.

The collection will see Cee Lo Green dueting with Eminem on a track, while Diplo and Swae Lee have also collaborated.

There will be appearances by the likes of Chris Isaak, Maneskin, Jazmine Sullivan, Pnau, Denzel Curry and more.

Kacey Musgraves is also set to appear, after recently revealing she recorded her own rendition of Elvis classic ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’.

Luhrmann had tried to stay coy about Kacey’s track, simply telling Variety: “She has a song in the movie — something to do with love.”

However, she later confirmed the song in question to the outlet.

Meanwhile, one track has been unveiled from the soundtrack so far, with Doja Cat’s ‘Vegas’ dropping this month.

It’s an original track composed for the film, and includes elements of Presley’s own music, including ‘Hound Dog’.

Priscilla Presley – who was married to Elvis between 1967 and 1973 – has seen the flick, and recently revealed she and Elvis’ longtime friend Jerry Schilling were both very impressed with Butler’s portrayal.

In a Facebook post, she said: “It is a true story told brilliantly and creatively that only Baz, in his unique artistic way, could have delivered. Austin Butler, who played Elvis is outstanding.

“Halfway through the film Jerry and I looked at each other and said WOW!!! Bravo to him…he knew he had big shoes to fill. He was extremely nervous playing this part. I can only imagine (sic)”
