Back in 2008, Lana Del Rey, uploaded three demos to MySpace under the moniker Sparkler Jump Rope Queen. Those three demos, ‘Elvis,’ ‘Blue Ribbon,’ and ‘Axl Rose Husband,’ never saw an official release. However, now she’s revived one of them for a new documentary on Elvis Presley. The Eugene Jarecki directed film will, of course, revive her track, ‘Elvis’. You can watch and listen to it below.
In The King, Jarecki travels across the country in a 1963 Rolls Royce once owned by Elvis. The documentary is a meditation on both Elvis’ life and on America. Lana Del Rey took to Twitter to share her song that accompanies the film. It’s a clip that is soundtracked by her demo ‘Elvis.’
