A new Elvis compilation celebrating the singer’s love of gospel music, “Where No One Stands Alone,” features a special, reimagined duet with his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, on the album’s title track.

The 14 tracks on “Where No One Stands Alone” take Presley’s gospel recordings, largely drawn from his albums “How Great Thou Art” (1967) and “He Touched Me” (1972), and combine them with new instrumentation and vocals from singers who collaborated with Presley over the course of his life, including Darlene Love and Cissy Houston.

Most notably, the title track features Lisa Marie Presley duetting with her father’s vocals from a song that originally came out in 1967.

“It was a very powerful and moving experience to sing with my father,” Lisa Marie wrote in the album’s liner notes. “The lyrics speak to me and touch my soul. I’m certain that the lyrics spoke to my father in much the same way.”.

In the notes, Lisa Marie goes on to share her experiences with her father’s love of gospel music. “This was his favorite genre – no question about it,” she wrote. “He seemed to be at his most passionate, and at peace while singing gospel. He would truly come alive – whether he was singing just for himself and me at home, or on stage in front of thousands of fans.”.
