New Release

New Release

Almost 40 years after his death, a song which was originally written for Elvis by one of his former songwriters has been recorded by Mario and is now available to buy on I-Tunes.

Flowers in Heaven was intended to be dedicated to Elvis’ late mother, Gladys Love Smith, but sadly it did not reach him before he died on August 16th 1977. This heartwarming ballad was written specifically for Elvis by Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter David Martin who, in the 1970’s, produced a string of hits for global artists including Elvis, Barry Manilow and Cliff Richard.  

David says: “It is difficult to express how much it means to be releasing this song which, sadly, Elvis never got to hear. He was so close to his mother and I wanted to try and capture this in the lyrics and feel of this song. Mario is an incredible singer and interprets the song beautifully and I feel really proud that he is going to take this song to fans around the UK.”

Mario adds: “I was honoured when David approached us to record and release Flowers in Heaven. In The Elvis Years production, we try and tell the whole story of Elvis’ life and the death of his mother is one of the most poignant parts of the show. This song reflects how Elvis may have felt following his devastating loss. He may well have gone on to record this song back in the 70’s. I believe it will carry resonance with Elvis fans and will also mean a lot to anyone that has lost someone close to them.”

Flowers in Heaven has been released on the Tamarin Records label and is produced and mixed by legendary producer, musical director and Ivor Novello award-winner David Mackay. David Martin has had four songs recorded by Elvis: This is The Story, A Little Bit of Green, Sweet Angeline and Let’s Be Friends (title track of one of Elvis’ RCA Camden albums). 

The song is available to download now from i-tunes and is also available to buy at shows.
