SotD - The Wonder of You


Supermodel Kate Moss has stepped into the shoes of the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley. Wait, what?...

Song of the Day usually brings you a track that we think you should listen to. That goes without saying for these classic Elvis vocals backed by some wonderful orchestration from the Royal Phil. But what the heck were they thinking with this video?!

Yes, The Wonder of You by Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the third track to be lifted from the massive number one album of the same name, now has a specially filmed video with Kate Moss channelling her love of rock 'n' roll and her own inner Elvis. With clothes and imagery that draw inspiration from existing Elvis photographs and footage, the video was filmed at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, where the album was recorded. It was conceptualised by Vaughan Arnell of Moxie Pictures who "discovered a striking resemblance between classic Elvis Presley images and some of Kate Moss' most famous fashion shots."

Erm... is that meant to be flattering? Apparently it was.

Kate Moss said: "I was so excited to be asked to be involved in this project, anything for Elvis…"

The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is the follow up to last year's million unit selling Royal Philharmonic revamp of  If I Can Dream. The album debuted immediately at No.1 in the UK Album Charts, officially making Elvis the biggest solo artist in UK music history having amassed a record 13 No.1 albums – the most ever for a solo artist overtaking the record previously set by Madonna.

'The Wonder Of You' 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 and a new take on the beautiful country classic Always On My Mind. 

Let us know what you think of the video.
