Doja Cat announces contribution to ‘Elvis’, ‘Vegas’ beep soundtrack

Doja Cat has announced the release of ‘Vegas’, which she has added to the upcoming Elvis biopic soundtrack.

The film directed by Baz Luhrmann opens in theaters on June 24, with Austin Butler playing the King of Rock’n’Roll.

After teasing ‘Vegas’ on her set at Coachella 2022 earlier this month, Doja has now confirmed the release of the track. The song will arrive next month, though the exact date has not been announced yet.

A snippet of the song was also shared online, suggesting that the track exemplifies the voices from “Hound Dog” by Big Mama Thornton which was once covered by Elvis himself. Listen to a snippet of “Vegas” below.

The full Elvis soundtrack will be released this summer via RCA. The exact nature of the backing disc has not yet been confirmed, although a spokesperson for the label told Variety “that the album will feature variations on Presley’s material with input from a number of well – known artists representing different genres”.

The first trailer for Elvis was shared in February, giving fans a first look at how the film will encompass the life and career of the iconic musician. The film examines Elvis’ relationship with his manager, Colonel Tom Parker (played by Tom Hanks), from his rise to unprecedented fame.

In other Doja Cat news, the star will appear on Post Malone’s new album “Twelve Carat Toothache.” The rapper shared clips of songs from the album in a live stream on Saturday night (April 23), including one by Doja called ‘Happy’.

“I feel so blessed to be honored to work with her,” he told fans as he introduced the track.
