Måneskin Make Our Dreams Come True With Their Version of Elvis’ ‘If I Can Dream’

Once upon a time, Måneskin were simply four teenagers busking on the streets of Rome and playing to a couple of hundred people at local music competitions. Now, however, they are critically acclaimed Eurovision Song Contest winners and are playing arena shows across the world. We at THP couldn’t be more proud! In their next step towards world domination, the group has released their version of Elvis Presley’s ‘If I Can Dream’ and we think it may be their best cover to date. 

‘If I Can Dream’

The original song was written by Walter Earl Brown for Elvis Presley in 1968 and takes inspiration from Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. The song has now, however, been re-imagined for the upcoming Elvis movie, directed by Baz Luhrman. Set to release on June 24th, the film depicts Elvis’ career through the lens of the relationship with his manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Austin Butler plays the titular role of Elvis Presley and we simply can’t wait to see him take on this iconic role in what we think could possibly be one of the biggest films of the year. 

‘If I Can Dream’ comes as the newest release from the Elvis soundtrack and truly showcases Måneskin’s versatility as a group. Compared to their recent releases of ‘MAMAMIA’ and ‘Supermodel,’ ‘If I Can Dream’ shows a softer and more mellowed-out side to Måneskin that we usually only see in their b-side tracks. Combining Damiano’s charismatic and unique vocals with the band’s faultless instrumentation, Måneskin is able to bring something new and fresh to the song that is sure to be a standout on the soundtrack as a whole.

Who Is Måneskin?

The iconic four-piece is made up of lead singer Damiano David, bassist Victoria De Angelis, guitarist Thomas Raggi, and drummer Ethan Torchio, they are perhaps best known for their viral hit ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave’ that dominated Tik Tok in 2021. As well as having their own incredible discography, Måneskin never fails to disappoint when it comes to their covers. Their most iconic cover is, of course, ‘Beggin,’ first performed on the X-Factor where the group eventually placed second.

Their involvement in the new Elvis movie is only one part of the big year the band has in store, with their LOUD KIDS world tour coming to the US in October and their upcoming second album Supermodel hopefully following soon after. Måneskin are definitely ones to watch in the future!

The soundtrack also features songs by Doja Cat, Swae Lee and Diplo, and Austin Butler himself, all of which are available for listening now. When the film releases, however, we will also be able to hear songs from other great artists such as Kacey Musgraves, Jazmine Sullivan, and Stevie Nicks. Set to release on the same day as the film, we can’t wait to see how these artists come together to celebrate Elvis Presley and his various different influences.
