« Depuis l’âge de 2 ans, tout ce que je connaissais, c’était la musique gospel. Elle est devenue une partie de ma vie si importante, c’était aussi naturel que danser. Une façon de m’éloigner de mes problèmes, et ma façon de me libérer. » Les fans d’Elvis connaissent la vénération de leur idole pour le gospel. Des fans toujours prêts à mettre la main à la poche lorsqu’il s’agit d’étoffer leur discothèque déjà XXXL. Même quand l’entreprise sent un peu trop le tiroir-caisse… Avec ce Where No One Stands Alone, c’est donc la face gospel du King qui est célébrée. Produit par Joel Weinshanker, Lisa Marie Presley et Andy Childs, l’album publié en août 2018 contient des versions réorchestrées réalisées avec des artistes qui ont travaillé avec Elvis sur scène ou en studio, comme Darlene Love (qui a chanté avec lui pour la première fois lors du show TV spécial pour NBC en 1968) et Dr. Cissy Houston (qui, avec les Sweet Inspirations, a accompagné la star sur scène dès 1969).

Where No One Stands Alone propose également un duo avec sa fille Lisa Marie Presley, sur la chanson qui donne son titre au disque. « C’était très fort et émouvant de chanter avec mon père, écrit l’héritière dans les notes de l’album. Les paroles me parlent et touchent mon âme. Je suis sûre qu’elles ont aussi touché mon père de la même façon. » Parmi ces enregistrements figurent des classiques chers au King comme Crying in the Chapel, How Great Thou Art, You’ll Never Walk Alone, Saved composé par Jerry Lieber et Mike Stoller, So High, Stand By Me, In The Garden et l’incontournable Amazing Grace. Bref, des titres essentiellement piochés dans ces deux albums gospel, How Great Thou Art publié en 1967 et He Touched Me en 1972. Concrètement, seule la voix du King a été conservée. A la trappe donc les parties des Jordanaires, des guitaristes Scotty Moore, Chip Young et James Burton, le piano de Floyd Cramer et la batterie de D.J. Fontana. Quand on connaît ces enregistrements d’origine, l’amputation est douloureuse. Voire pénible… Pourtant, le travail proposé ici est plus qu’honnête et ne dénature ni l’intention initiale du King, ni l’esprit de ses interprétations. Logiquement, cette production 2018 apporte une touche « contemporaine » sans pour autant faire dans le jeunisme hypocrite et vain. Surtout, la voix du maître des lieux est intacte et toujours aussi renversante. L’union entre le Roi et le Seigneur ne pouvait qu’être divine… © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Descriptif de l'album

« Depuis l’âge de 2 ans, tout ce que je connaissais, c’était la musique gospel. Elle est devenue une partie de ma vie si importante, c’était aussi naturel que danser. Une façon de m’éloigner de mes problèmes, et ma façon de me libérer. » Les fans d’Elvis connaissent la vénération de leur idole pour le gospel.

Elvis, toujours roi ?

Quarante-deux ans après sa mort, Elvis Presley demeure un précurseur inégalé. Mais si ses essentielles séances de 1954-1955 pour le label Sun restent la pierre angulaire du rock’n’roll, l’aura du King semble aujourd'hui s’estomper chez les plus jeunes au profit des Beatles, des Stones et autres Beach Boys. Et pourtant…

Les Rita Mitsouko, partenaires particuliers

Les Rita Mitsouko formaient un couple insolite, mais ça n’a pas empêché leur musique de séduire un très large public. À coups d’audace et de mélanges, parfois de scandales, le groupe formé par Catherine Ringer et Fred Chichin en 1979 a écrit des chansons essentielles de la bande-son des années 1980, et devenues éternelles. Alors que la Philharmonie de Paris offre une carte blanche à la chanteuse pour les 40 ans du groupe, retour sur l’itinéraire d’un duo pas comme les autres.

Iggy et les Stooges, l'aube punk

En 1969, une bande d’auto-proclamés crétins dynamite le rock’n’roll à coup de distorsion et de textes nihilistes. A la tête de ces Stooges, Iggy Pop, une sorte de Nijinski habité et révolté, destiné à devenir le parrain du punk rock à venir.
