Britney Spears‘ remix of Elvis Presley‘s ‘Viva Las Vegas’.Luhrmann’s new Elvis biopic features a version of ‘Viva Las Vegas’ mashed up with Britney’s 2003 hit ‘Toxic’, but the version was left off the film’s official soundtrack.Now, in a new interview with Rolling Stone, Luhrmann said it was his “commitment” to try and get the version of the song released.“There’s a lot of love, a lot of intense love for the Britney/Elvis track in the movie, and it’s my commitment to try [to release the song],” Luhrmann said.Last month, Britney teamed up with Elton John for the new single ‘Hold Me Closer’, a reimagining of John’s 1971 classic track ‘Tiny Dancer’.
