Lightspeed Champion has recorded a cover of Elvis Presley's 'Devil In Disguise' to celebrate what would have been his 75th birthday.

Dev Hynes said: "Due to a popular band having leftover studio time at New York's historic Avatar Studios, I had the opportunity of going into Studio A to record some music… Obviously I decided an Elvis song would be best. I got my friends from the band Spacecamp down and together we recorded an "almost" live version of Devil In Disguise with the help of whoever was in the building that felt like singing... including the receptionist.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELVIS! LONG LIVE THE KING!!!"
