Lisa Marie Presley is releasing a new duet that incorporates the vocals of her late father, Elvis Presley, the King of Rock n' Roll, and the two are featured in a new music video for the song, which was recorded earlier this year to mark the 35th anniversary of his death.

Lisa Marie, 44, is the only child of the iconic singer, who died at age 42 in 1977. Her mother is his widow Priscilla. Her new duet," "I Love You Because," is set to be released on Tuesday. Elvis first recorded the song in 1954.

Lisa Marie had debuted the clip at at the 35th Anniversary Elvis Concert in Memphis on August 16 and "following a warm reception by fans," she "agreed to share the video with CMT," the cable channel said in a statement.

The music video features "never-before-seen" family photos of Lisa Marie with her 4-year-old twin girls, Finley and Harper, as well as her son Benjamin, 19, and daughter Riley, 23. The singer's older children's father is Danny Keough, while the twins' dad is Lisa Marie's current and fourth husband, Michael Lockwood. Both he and her ex are musicians.

Lisa Marie's music video for "I Love You Because" is due to premiere on the CMT cable channel and on CMT.com on Thursday, October 18 at 8 a.m. ET. The clip will hit iTunes on October 25.

Lisa Marie, who is also known for being the ex-wife of the late Michael Jackson, has recorded songs featuring Elvis' vocals before. She released a duet of his 1969 song "Don't Cry Daddy" in 1997 at a tribute concert marking the 20th anniversary of his death. Ten years later, in 2007, she released a duet and music video of Elvis' 1969 hit "In The Ghetto."

Lisa Marie's debut album, "To Whom It May Concern," hit stores in 2003. It sold more than 500,000 copies in the United States. Her third studio album, "Storm & Grace," hit stores in May. Lisa is preparing to promote the record with a North American tour, starting in November. Her concert series ends at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
