Kacey Musgraves covers Elvis Presley’s ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’

Kacey Musgraves has shared a cover of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”

The track comes from the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming biopic Elvis. In addition to Musgraves’ cover, the collection is set to feature Elvis samples and reworkings from Doja Cat, Diplo and Swae Lee, and Eminem and CeeLo Green.

Unlike the other tunes, this cover of “Can’t Help Falling In Love” is a classy, soft, piano-driven ballad. Musgraves rendition is pretty stripped back, with melancholic keys, reverb-heavy vocals, and atmospheric melodies. This take on the intimate classic feels like a devastating breakup tune, unlike the heartfelt original.

Listen to Kacey Musgraves’ cover of “Can’t Help Falling In Love” below.

“Can’t Help Falling in Love” first appeared on Elvis’ 1961 album, Blue Hawaii.

Elvis is out in theatres on June 24th, and the soundtrack arrives on the same day through House Of Iona and RCA.
