NEW YORK, June 3 (UPI) -- Elvis Presley's song "Baby Let's Play House," remixed by Italy's D.J. Spankox, was released digitally as a new single Tuesday.

A special limited-edition CD single of the remix will also be available exclusively at Graceland in Memphis and online at shopelvis.com.

This is the third Elvis Presley remix to be commercially released by SONY BMG in cooperation with Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. following the hits "A Little Less Conversation" in 2002 and "Rubberneckin'" in 2003.

"Anytime Elvis' master recordings are altered, we take a special interest to make sure the new sound is the right sound. Elvis was a pioneer who broke the mold and a barrier with his music, this remix does just that with a fresh approach to an Elvis classic," Jack Soden, CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises, said in a statement.

Presley originally recorded "Baby Let's Play House" in April of 1955 at Sun Studio in Memphis.

"I fell in love with this song, mostly because of Elvis' superior voice and the song's title, not really thinking about the true meaning behind the lyrics, but rather how the title 'Baby Let's Play House' relates to the music genre I play as DJ, house music," Spankox added.
