Hotly-tipped band to head to Los Angeles soon

Hotly-tipped Glaswegian band Glasvegas are set to head to Los Angeles to record with Lisa Marie Presley.

The band are set to record a song with the daughter of Elvis Presley, after she met up with the band in Edinburgh in December, reports BBC 6 Music.

Presley was a fan of the band’s single, ‘Daddy’s Gone’, so got in touch and is now set to help them out in the studio.
