Lisa Marie Presley: Back In Force With New Album

Posted: Updated:

It's been seven years since Lisa Marie Presley has released a new album...but now she's back in force. "Storm & Grace" is her newest one and she's playing the El Rey Theatre September 1. Steve and Maria asked her about the hiatus. she says it was about dealing with a lot of changes in her life.

"A lot of taking things apart and putting them back together, sort of starting from ground zero and redirecting a lot of things, refocusing."

Presley's latest songs have an Americana flavor, something she says was done by design. She also discusses teaming up with award winning musician and record producer T-Bone Burnett.

"The flavor was already in the demos...he comes in and adds all the icing to the cake and the bells and whistles and he has his take."

She also talks about being the daughter of a legend and playing music in his shadow.

"I know I have to prove myself, I know I have to win them over and do what I have to do and it's always fun..."

Presley also talks about her father and says she and the family still go to Graceland several times a year, including Thanksgivings.

"We try to keep it very homey...it can shut down easily and nicely and turn tight back into a home at night."

Presley also talks about the mischief she got into as a kid living at Graceland.

"We were in so much trouble all the time...throwing pool balls at each other...I would take a golf cart and run it through a fence. Nobody was ever watching us."
