Stevie Nicks has recorded a song of Elvis Presley’s “Cotton Candy Land,” which is featured in the opening scene of the latest biopic Elvis. Chris Isaak, a singer-songwriter, joins her on the single.
Ruth Batchelor and Bob Roberts wrote “Cotton Candy Land,” which Presley performed in 1962. He was accompanied by the Mellomen, a singing quartet that also performed for celebrities such as Rosemary Clooney, Bing Crosby, Doris Day, and Peggy Lee. Presley sang the tune in the 1963 film It Happened at the World’s Fair, in which he portrayed an agriculture pilot.
Nicks is one of many musicians that have contributed to the Elvis soundtrack. The record features Jack White, Eminem, Tame Impala, and Kacey Musgraves, while the film stars Yola (as Sister Rosetta Tharpe) and Gary Clark Jr. (as Arthur Crudup).
Elvis, starring Austin Butler as the King, is already in theaters and is expected to do well at the box office. “By all accounts, Austin Butler has recharged the life [of] Elvis Presley,” Priscilla Presley, Elvis Presley’s ex-wife, recently tweeted on Twitter. “Not that it has ever left us, but it will, I feel, give our younger generation a taste of why Elvis is still the king of [rock ‘n’ roll], beloved and always will be.”
