A Conversation with Lisa Marie Presley
Mike Ragogna: Lisa, you have a new album, Storm & Grace, and you approached this one very differently than your others, especially by working on it with T-Bone Burnett. Can you tell us the history of how the project came together?
Lisa Marie Presley: It came together very organically. Nothing was contrived. A few years go, Simon Fuller, he kind of just set up for me to go to England and write with various writers. The plan was to go for about a month and see what happened and get with different types of people to write with. I kind of half expected to write and then be done with it in a month, but I ended up staying for eight months and fell in love with England. I wrote thirty-two songs and came back to Los Angeles and sold everything and was about to move. Right before I left, I got the call that T-Bone had heard the demos and that he wanted me to meet him, so I went over to his home, and he said he really liked what he heard, and he wanted to do the record. I was beside myself! So that's kind of how it unfolded.

The daughter of Elvis Presley said she has been in talks about a movie, though she didn't offer a timetable.
