In the wake of the successful biopic film that has inspired a new generation of Elvis fans, Attalie Anne has released a decidedly feminine take on Blue Suede Shoes that is a little bit cheeky and every bit as toe-tapping as the original.
Attalie Anne is a 17-year-old, singer songwriter, but she is also an avid music consumer. Just as hopeful as the next girl to snag Taylor Swift Eras Tour tickets, Attalie has very diverse musical tastes. She fills her playlists with a variety of tunes from contemporary artists like Gracie Abrams, FINNEAS and OneRepublic to classics like Johnny Cash, Elton John, David Bowie and, of course, Elvis Presley.
“Blue Suede Shoes is such a fun song, and I love everything about the Elvis version, but I felt like it needed a feminine voice. A woman would definitely relate to the consuming effort to keep that favorite pair of shoes pristine,” Attalie said. “I mean suede is just so hard to keep clean.”
There is a charming innocence to Attalie’s recording, where she swapped the lyric “drinking liquor from an old fruit jar” for “drinking spritzer.” The track’s satisfying bass line lends a rockabilly sound that grounds the recording and makes it impossible for listeners to sit still.
Attalie Anne records in her home studio in Phoenix. Her Blue Suede Shoes cover was mastered by Gene Grimaldi of Oasis Mastering in Burbank, CA. Her debut EP, Things I Said features five original songs including Broken Like Us, Jupiter and Okay, covering a range of relatable topics from courage and determination amidst trials, to teenage awkwardness and heartache.
