The veteran singer, 75, will release the album - 'News of Just ... Fabulous Rock 'n' Roll' - in November, and hopes it will top the charts at Christmas.
One track, entitled Blue Suede Shoes, will feature Sir Cliff singing a 'duet' with the King of Rock 'n' Roll.
Other songs on the album will feature Sir Cliff sing renditions of Roll Over Beethoven, Great Balls of Fire and Sweet Little Sixteen - as well as a new original track, It's Better To Dream.
It will also feature his debut single Move It. Sir Cliff released his first album 'Move It' in 1958 and said it was a lifetime ambition to sing a 'duet' with Elvis.
He added: 'Not only do I find it hard to believe that my career has spanned this length of time, but also that I still get the chance to do the thing I love best, and that is to get into a studio.
'My new CD is another dip into an incredible period of our musical history. A happy, creative, and in many ways an innocent time.'I will always love this music, but more importantly I hope you do too. Rock on!'
Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
