Release is first in new series of free songs from Dev Hynes
The video for the track, which you can watch below, features Lightspeed Champion (aka Dev Hynes) dressed in a gold catsuit. Speaking about his version, Hynes revealed that it was recorded during a recent session in New York.
“Due to a popular band having leftover studio time at New York‘s historic Avatar Studios, I had the opportunity of going into Studio A to record some music… Obviously I decided an Elvis song would be best.”
He added that the song features a few special guests on vocals.
“I got my friends from the band Spacecamp down and together we recorded an ‘almost’ live version of ‘Devil In Disguise’ with the help of whoever was in the building that felt like singing…including the receptionist. Happy Birthday Elvis! Long live the king!”
The song is one of a few free tracks Hynes plans to give away in the next month, having recorded a batch of live material taken from his forthcoming album ‘Life Is Sweet! Nice To Meet You’ (released on February 15) during the Avatar session.
