Announcement: Where No One Stands Alone celebrates the power
and passion of Elvis Presley’s gospel recordings. Produced by Joel Weinshanker,
Lisa Marie Presley and Andy Childs, Where No One Stands Alone introduces
newly-recorded instrumentation, rare alternate vocals from Elvis, and backing
vocal contributions from music legends who'd performed on-stage and/or
in-the-studio with Elvis such as, Darlene Love; Cissy Houston; Terry Blackwood,
Armond Morales and Jim Murray of The Imperials; and Bill Baize, Ed Hill, Donnie
Sumner and Larry Strickland of The Stamps Quartet. Hundreds of hours of went
into the transferring, upgrading, and enhancing of the original multi track
vocals resulting in the richest, most vibrant Elvis vocals on these tracks that
have ever been released.
The album also includes a reimagined duet with Elvis and his daughter, Lisa
Marie Presley, on the album’s title track and spiritual touchstone.
Where No One Stands Alone provides new musical perspectives on 14 of the
singer's favorite pieces of gospel music, from the reverential to the
celebratory, with song selections including Presley's beloved enduring gospel
classics (the 1965 Top 5 smash "Crying In The Chapel," "How Great Thou Art," "You'll
Never Walk Alone"), praise-filled gospel-rockers (Jerry Lieber and Mike
Stoller's "Saved") and traditional hymns and spirituals ("So High," "Stand By Me,"
"In The Garden," "Amazing Grace").
