SEPTEMBER 8, 2016 – Sony Music is proud to announce the release of The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, on October 14, 2016.  This remarkable new album is the follow up to last year’s huge global phenomenon If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which topped charts in the UK and worldwide and sold over 1.5 million copies.
The Wonder Of You focuses on the iconic artist’s unmistakable voice with lush new orchestral accompaniment.  Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London with acclaimed producers Don Reedman and Nick Patrick, the album features Elvis’ most dramatic original performances augmented with lush new arrangements by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.   The album spans a variety of musical styles that Elvis embraced, from rock and gospel to country and ballads, featuring beloved Presley classics along with several surprises.  Standout tracks include a sultry new version of the “A Big Hunk O’ Love,” the glorious “Amazing Grace,” the heartfelt emotion on “Kentucky Rain,” a stunning new take on the classic “Always On My Mind,” and the fun, upbeat “I’ve Got A Think About You Baby.”
Multiple versions of The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be available; CD, 150g gatefold 2LP, and digital formats. In addition, for completists a Deluxe version of the album will be released on December 2nd and will include a CD with two additional tracks, two 150 gram LPs in a gatefold package, a poster suitable for framing and a 12 page booklet, all housed in a beautiful 12”x12” lift off box.
The album precedes a major UK arena event, Elvis In Concert with The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra which starts November 17th featuring a very special personal appearance by Priscilla Presley. Fans will see Elvis live on screen accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra performing the King of Rock and Roll’s most well-known “rocking” songs and his tender, heart-wrenching ballads.   The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is available to preorder now:
