It wasn’t until 2003 that Elvis Presley’s only child Lisa Marie Presley released her debut album, To Whom It May Concern. The record arrived some 26 years after The King’s death, which happened when his daughter was just 9-years-old. Lights Out, the album’s first single reflected on Lisa Marie’s background as Elvis’ kid, while the lyrics even mentioned Graceland’s Meditation Garden where The King’s grave and other relatives are buried.

Lights Out was co-written by songwriter, lyricist and music producer Glen Ballard, who previously worked with Lisa Marie’s ex-husband Michael Jackson on Thriller and other albums.

Speaking exclusively with Express.co.uk, he shared memories of writing music for To Whom It May Concern with Elvis’ daughter.

The 68-year-old said: “She was signed to my label actually; Java Records through Capitol.

“We had this song… which I think is always going to be associated with her, just about the overwhelming burden of being Elvis’ daughter.”
