Susan Boyle will record a new version of 'Oh Come All Ye Faithful' with Elvis Presley to feature on her forthcoming Christmas album, according to reports.

The posthumous collaboration will see Boyle become the first British artist to 'work' with Presley since his death in 1977 and will be part of Boyle's forthcoming Christmas album.

Frank Sinatra and Celine Dion both previously recorded duets with Presley following his death. As The Sun reports, the singer has received approval from Presley's family to record the song.

According to the paper, a source said, "Priscilla (Elvis' ex-wife) asked Susan in person why she should be given the honour. Susan gave a hearfelt speech about how much it meant to her family and how Elvis was her father's idol. It must have worked."

Earlier this year it was revealed that a collection of Elvis Presley's recording sessions at Stax Records will be released together as a box set for the first time. Titled 'Elvis at Stax: Deluxe Edition', the three-CD box set also features outtakes and rare photos from the two July and December 1973 sessions, which resulted in three separate albums.
