Måneskin has premiered a cover of Elvis Presley‘s 1968 “If I Can Dream,” recorded for the upcoming Elvis biopic.

Taking a different direction from what you might expect from the “Beggin'” rockers, Måneskin’s rendition of “If I Can Dream” opts for a slow-burn approach that builds to a crescendo towards the end of the song.

“Feeling so grateful to have had the chance to cover the King for [director Baz Luhrmann‘s] movie and recorded it in Graceland,” Måneskin says.

You can listen to the cover now via digital outlets.

Elvis, which stars Austin Butler in the title role and Tom Hanks as his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, premieres in theaters June 24. Its soundtrack, which will be released that same day, also includes contributions from Jack White, Tame Impala, Gary Clark Jr. and Stevie Nicks.
