August 13 - Listen to If I Can Dream

Various tracks of the new “If I Can Dream” album are becoming available. The on-line Elvis Express radio station played two tracks. On the Rolling Stone magazine site the title track is available. 

The record's first single, exclusively streaming here, is "If I Can Dream," the plea for a better world that Presley sang as the closing number of his legendary '68 Comeback Special. In the context of that performance, the song came off as a dramatic showstopper. The updated track, which adds some tasteful strings and a smart horn arrangement that beefs up the one on the original, isn't a different so much as a fuller version of the song.
