I Love You Because - (Single)

 2012 1015 elvis lisa presley love you because 400

On October 15, 2012, Lisa Marie Presley premiered her emotional duet with her father, Elvis Presley.

"I Love You Because" was first recorded by Elvis on July 4th and 5th, 1954 at SUN Studio. The session started on the 4th and ended early on the morning of the 5th in Memphis, Tenn., the same day he recorded "That's All Right." Producer Sam Phillips did not think "I Love You Because" was the right song for Elvis' first single, so it eventually found its way to his first album released in 1956. Following its first studio recording, the song was never performed again by Elvis. Lisa Marie recorded her vocals to the song on August 8, 2012 at The Village in Santa Monica, Calif., after consulting with producer T-Bone Burnett who presented her with the idea of "I Love You Because" as a special song for her fans.
