The video clip for 'The Wonder of You' features Kate as she channels Elvis Presley as she seduces the camera. It is the first original music video for an Elvis track produced in this decade. The video is shot in black and white and features Moss, 42, in four key Elvis looks which include the black leather suit made famous during his 1968 Comeback Special.
The video begins with a close-up on a black leather jumpsuit, a custom-made piece created for Moss to reference the leather suit Presley made famous in his 1968 Comeback Special. The supermodel, clad in the leather jumpsuit, is seen singing at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios, where 'The Wonder of You' was originally recorded.
kate then goes on to lounge on vintage sofas, and a piano, dressed in an embroidered shirt and fishnet tights. She’s also filmed wearing more high-glamour looks, such as a crystal-embellished white gown and a sequinned top with matching leather shorts.
Vaughan Arnell of Moxie Pictures came up with the idea after noticing some striking similarities between Moss's most famous fashion shoots and Elvis, and it was recorded at Abbey Road Studios. Kate and her glam squad descended on the Abbey Road studio last week to shoot the top secret video.

'Elvis always loved the great, operatic vocalists', says Priscilla Presley, executive producer of The Wonder of You. 'We often talked about his interest in recording material that allowed him to perform in that space. It's exciting to hear him on these recordings, performing with the world-class Royal Philharmonic Orchestra via the magic of Abbey Road Studios. He would have loved these performances and I'm very happy that we were able to make this dream come true for Elvis and his fans.'
'As with the first time we stepped into this amazing world – it is the extraordinary intimacy of Elvis's vocal performances that is truly breathtaking', says Nick Patrick. 'The exquisite and effortless way he takes us on an emotional journey with him through delicate sensitivity to power and grace all within a magical 3-minute song. It's a wonderful, wonderful privilege for which we are truly grateful.'
'I believe we have made an album that is uplifting, sensitive, heart touching and fun – the way that Elvis was and still is to so many of us', says Don Reedman. 'His spirit has never left the building!'

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.
