Lightspeed Champion Turns Elvis Impersonator

January 8, 2010 by  

To celebrate what would have been Elvis’ 75th birthday, the ever changing Lightspeed Champion is giving away a free download of his version of the track Devil In Disguise, recorded in Avatar Studios in New York.

Dev Hynes, aka Lightspeed Champion, also made an accompanying video in LA which you can watch below:

Whilst in Avatar Studios, Dev Hynes took the opportunity to record live versions of tracks from his forthcoming second album, Life Is Sweet! Nice To Meet You (released February 15th on LP, CD & Digital). Over the next four weeks, one of these live tracks will be available to download for free each week.

Speaking about the free tracks, and the Elvis impression, Dev Hynes said: ‘Due to a popular band having leftover studio time at New York’s historic Avatar Studios, I had the opportunity of going into Studio A to record some music… Obviously I decided an Elvis song would be best. I got my friends from the band Spacecamp down and together we recorded an “almost” live version of Devil In Disguise with the help of whoever was in the building that felt like singing… including the receptionist.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELVIS! LONG LIVE THE KING!!!’
