A new album featuring music by Elvis Presley is set to be released in November to mark what would have been his 75h birthday.

'Viva Elvis' has been drawn and inspired by the same-titled Cirque Du Soleil production in Las Vegas.

Erich van Tourneau, the musical's director and album's producer, said 'Viva Evlis' shows what Elvis's songs would sound like if he were still performing them today.

"We set out to evoke the soul and spirit of Elvis Presley while building a bridge between his music and future generations of fans,” he added.

'Viva Elvis' is due to be released around the world in November.

Widely regarded as one of music's biggest stars, Elvis died in August 1977 at the age of 42.
