Wow! Every movement exact! He sounds so much like Elvis when he was young. Austin nailed it.
Elvis Presley’s version of “Hound Dog” is a classic rock and roll song that was first recorded in 1952 by Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton. However, it was Elvis Presley’s 1956 version that became the most famous and influential rendition of the song.
Recently, in 2021, a new version of “Hound Dog” was released as part of the biographical drama film, “Elvis,” which is directed by Baz Luhrmann and stars Austin Butler as Elvis Presley. The expanded version of “Hound Dog” is performed by Butler, who worked hard to capture the energy and spirit of Elvis Presley’s performance.
The new version of “Hound Dog” features updated production and instrumentation, with a fuller sound that incorporates elements of modern rock and pop music. However, the core of the song remains true to the original, with Butler’s powerful vocals and energetic delivery capturing the rebellious, fun-loving spirit of rock and roll.
Overall, the expanded version of “Hound Dog” is a fresh take on a classic song that pays homage to Elvis Presley’s legacy while bringing the song into the modern era.
