could be about to rewrite the record books with the release of a forgotten track – 25 years after his death.
‘A Little Less Conversation’, released today (June 10), could take the King’s tally of number ones to 18, stepping ahead of The Beatles, with whom he has been tied on 17 for years.
The track has exploded in popularity since being used on a Nike television commercial – featuring some of the world’s best current footballers, as well as former Manchester United talisman Eric Cantona. It had also appeared on the David Holmes-helmed soundtrack to Hollywood smash ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ from earlier in the year.
The track has been remixed by Dutch DJ Junkie XL, who was forced by the Elvis Presley
estate to become JXL on the sleeve as they were unhappy at the drug reference of his name.
The song first appeared in one of Elvis Presley‘ 1960s movies and as the B-side to his 1968 single, ‘Almost In Love’, the BBC claim.
However, Elvis Presley
faces tough competition from Elvis Presley, who launches another chart assault today with ‘Love At First Sight’. He’ll also have to see off the tough incumbentWill Young.
