Elvis could top the charts again with Oakenfold remix
Elvis Presley could top the charts again later this year with a new remix by Paul Oakenfold of a little known track called Rubberneckin'.
A new hits collection, called Elvis: Second To None, will also be released to coincide with the single's release.
Elvis originally sang Rubberneckin' in his 1969 movie Change Of Habit and was issued as the flip-side to his 1970 hit Don't Cry Daddy.
RCA Records in co-operation with The Elvis Presley Estate, will also release a four CD set of previously unreleased material.
The recordings will be released around the time of the 26th anniversary of Elvis' death on August 16, 1977.
The box set, Elvis Close Up, will include remastered stereo outtakes of recordings Elvis made in the 1950s including Loving You and Jailhouse Rock, tracks from Elvis' first four movies including previously unreleased outtakes and unreleased songs from Elvis' Nashville sessions.
It will also feature Live In Texas 1972, an unreleased concert in San Antonio with songs including Burning Love, Proud Mary, How Great Thou Art, An American Trilogy and Suspicious Minds.
Elvis last topped the UK chart in 2001 with Dutch DJ Junkie XL's remix of A Little Less Conversation.

Was it really that long ago? It only seems like last year.
