Out via House of Iona/RCA Records, the soundtrack debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Soundtrack chart and reached the top 30 on Billboard’s 200 charts at #26. The soundtrack was released June 24th with Baz Luhrmann’s critically-acclaimed blockbuster film ELVIS, starring Austin Butler and Tom Hanks, which also landed at #1 at the box office in its first weekend in theaters. The success of the film and soundtrack gave a lift to Elvis’ discography, bumping Elvis: 30 #1 Hits album to #1 on Billboard’s Catalog Albums chart. Most recently, the ELVIS soundtrack was nominated for “Favorite Soundtrack” at the 2022 American Music Awards.
Spanning over 30 years, visionary filmmaker Baz Luhrmann’s ELVIS explores Presley (Austin Butler) the artist and the man—through love, loss, his unprecedented rise to fame, and the complex dynamic with manager Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks)—set against the backdrop of America’s evolving cultural landscape and the timeless music he gave the world. The soundtrack features Elvis’s extraordinary body of work spanning the 1950s, `60s, and `70s, while also celebrating his diverse musical influences and enduring impact on popular artists today.
