    Elvis Was My Brother (from Southern Wind album) is released as a digital single on 17 Aug (the day after 41st anniversary of Elvis’s death), and a brand new video. The song is based on a true story, and celebrates what being a music fan means to the fan – both in the story of the song, and the video, compiled from Super8 footage riffling thro Dean’s back pages of his travels round the USA, including sitting at the recording desk at Sun Studios, paying tribute to Johnny Cash in his old house in Dyess, and much more.
    Dean: I’m over the moon about the idea of playing this in Memphis, on the same stage where Elvis started out.
