Listen To The New Remix Version of 'Saved' From The Album 'Where No One Stands Alone'
The groundbreaking new album, Elvis Presley — Where No One Stands Alone, releasing on August 10, features 14 original performances of gospel songs with newly recorded instrumentation and backing vocals, all in support of Elvis’ original lead vocal recordings.
“Saved” is an energetic gospel-rock call-and-response tune with some fun rhythmic twists, sassy lyrics and Darlene Love jumping in on background vocals. And in classic Elvis fashion, the king testifies as he gives up his errant ways.
Love, who first sang with Elvis on his 1968 NBC television special, shares, “I had the honor to perform a terrific version of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stroller’s ‘Saved’ on the popular ABC TV show Shindig in 1965 with The Blossoms as the lead vocalist. Though we never recorded it officially it predates Elvis’ version which I sang background vocals for with the group.”
Elvis once said, “Since I was 2 years old, all I knew was gospel music. It became such a part of my life, it was as natural as dancing. A way to escape my problems, and my way of release.” We can feel the glory!
NEW REMIXED VERSION
ORIGINAL 'ELVIS' TV SPECIAL VERSION
Produced by Joel Weinshanker, Lisa Marie Presley and Andy Childs, Elvis Presley — Where No One Stands Alone introduces newly recorded instrumentation and backing vocal contributions from music legends who’d performed on-stage and/or in-the-studio with Elvis, including Darlene Love, Cissy Houston, The Imperials and The Stamps. It also includes a reimagined duet with Elvis and his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, on the album’s title track and spiritual touchstone.
“It was a very powerful and moving experience to sing with my father,” wrote Lisa Marie in her notes for the album. “The lyrics speak to me and touch my soul. I’m certain that the lyrics spoke to my father in much the same way.”
Background vocalists on the album include: Darlene Love; Cissy Houston (who, with The Sweet Inspirations, sang with Elvis on-stage beginning in 1969); Terry Blackwood, Armond Morales and Jim Murray (members of The Imperials, who sang on Elvis’ How Great Thou Art – with the title song winning the 1967 Grammy for Best Sacred Performance); and Donnie Sumner, Bill Baize, Ed Hilland Larry Strickland (members of Presley’s longtime backup group, The Stamps).
