Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Soundtrack | POPSUGAR Entertainment

On June 22nd, Kacey Musgraves released a heartbreaking cover of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” from Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis biopic. The song was released with a music video containing clips from the film itself, showing what appears to be an emotional breakup scene between Austin Butler’s Elvis and Olivia DeJonge’s Priscilla Presley. Needless to say, it makes for tearful viewing.

“Can’t Help Falling in Love” is the latest release from the “Elvis” soundtrack. On June 16, Måneskin shared a rendition of “If I Can Dream” and Eminem shared a rendition of “The King and I” with CeeLo Green. On June 10, RCA Records released a recording of Austin Butler singing “Trouble.” On June 3rd, Diplo and Swae Lee released Tupelo Shuffle, starring Gary Clark Jr. and Austin Butler. Tupelo Shuffle was released the day after Doja Cat’s release of Vegas, which remixes Elvis’ Hound Dog and includes a sample of Big Mama Thornton’s original 1953 recording.

“Elvis” hits theaters on June 24th, which is the same day as the full soundtrack will be released. As for the movie itself, there’s already a lot of buzz surrounding “Elvis” and its star-studded cast, which includes Austin Butler as the title star and Tom Hanks as his mysterious manager. Elvis wouldn’t be Elvis without the music, of course – and a Baz Luhrmann film wouldn’t be a Baz Luhrmann film without a unique soundtrack. The list of artists who will be featured on the film’s soundtrack was released on May 23, and by the looks of it, it’s going to be a creative mix of genres and time periods. It’s also an extremely chaotic mix of artists who at first glance don’t seem very related.

In addition to Doja Cat, Diplo and Swae Lee, the soundtrack will feature songs and recordings by Presley himself and stars Butler and Kodi Smit-McPhee. The soundtrack also features a host of other musical luminaries including Eminem and Cee Lo Green, Jack White, Jazmine Sullivan, Les Greene, Stevie Nicks and Tame Impala. Alton Mason, Lenesha Randolph, Maneskin, Nardo Wick, Paravi, Pnau, Rufus Thomas, Shonka Dukureh and Yola will also grace the soundtrack.

This isn’t Luhrmann’s first experiment with innovative, genre-bending soundtracks. In 2013’s “The Great Gatsby,” Luhrmann includes anachronistic tunes from artists like JAY-Z and Lana Del Rey, intended to emulate the progressive, seductive nature of jazz at the time the film was set. Whether Luhrmann attempts to emulate the awe-inspiring novelty of rock ‘n’ roll that made Presley himself so incredibly famous remains to be seen, but surely anything is possible given the soundtrack’s diverse cast.
