L'etichetta RCA/Legacy ha annunciato la pubblicazione, prevista a partire dal 09 Agosto 2024 del set composto da 5 CD dal titolo "Elvis Memphis".
"Memphis" è una raccolta completa che porta gli ascoltatori attraverso le numerose registrazioni che Elvis ha realizzato a Memphis: dalle sue canzoni alla SUN Records, alle sessions all'American Studio ed alla Stax, fino al concerto del 1974 nella sua città ed, infine, le sue ultime registrazioni a Graceland. Questa raccolta di 5 CD delle canzoni di Elvis Presley nel corso degli anni comprende 111 tracce, 88 delle quali sono nuove versioni mixate delle registrazioni selezionate, pure e senza sovraincisioni.
A parte le iconiche registrazioni della Sun, tutte le tracce di "Memphis" sono state nuovamente mixate da Ross-Spang, rimuovendo archi, fiati e cori aggiuntivi sovraincisi. Come nota Jørgensen, questo "fornisce uno sguardo unico ed immediato su cosa sentiva  Elvis mentre registrava tutte queste canzoni con la band".
