Christmas is coming early, with the release of Elvis Presley – Christmas with Elvis and the Royal Philharmonic on Friday, October 6th.

The record brings together Elvis’s best-loved yuletide performances from his 1957 Elvis’ Christmas Album and 1971’s Elvis Sings the Wonderful World of Christmas re-worked with new arrangements from The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The project is the follow-up to 2015’s If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and last year’s The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

“I hope you’ll enjoy this new Christmas album,” writes executive producer and former wife Priscilla Presley, in her liner notes for the record.  “The songs chosen were songs that Elvis was particularly fond of and it seemed quite fitting to have the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra once again accompanying him at this very special time of year.

“I’m positive he would be smiling if this opportunity came up in his lifetime and that this album would definitely be in the making. Merry Christmas to all….”
