'Storm And Grace' is due for release in May

Lisa Marie Presley has collaborated with Richard Hawley and Ed Harcourt on her new album ‘Storm And Grace’.

The LP, which is due for release in May, is Elvis‘ daughter’s first record in seven years. Recorded in the UK, the album was produced by T-Bone Burnett who worked on Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ Grammy Award winning ‘Raising Sand’ and the ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou’ soundtrack.

Speaking about her team-up with Hawley she told Rolling Stone:

He had never sat and written a song with anyone but Jarvis [Cocker] in the past. And he was kind of nervous, because he was like, ‘I’ve only written with Jarvis’. And then we wrote ‘Weary’.

The pair performed the song together at a gig in London in 2009. But it has never surfaced on record until now.

Presley also opened up about a series of tracks she wrote with Harcourt. She added: “He sings harmony with me and I’ve never had anyone else sing harmonies. I’ve always done my own [thing]. My management put me with lots of different people and I ended up gravitating and having a great thing with Richard, Ed and Sacha Skarbek.”

Hawley will release his own new album ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ on May 7.
