Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough commands the stage singing an original track in a teaser for his upcoming musical drama series Daisy Jones & The Six.
The adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s bestselling novel, chronicling the rise and fall of a fictional 1970s rock band, will premiere on Prime Video on March 3.
Led by Keough’s character, Jones, alongside Sam Claflin’s Billy Dunne, the series will see the band rise from obscurity to glory, before leaving after a sold-out show at Solider Field in Chicago.
Also featuring Suki Waterhouse, Camila Morrone, Will Harrison, Josh Whitehouse, Sebastian Chacon, Nabiyah Be, Tom Wright and a guest appearance from Timothy Olyphant, the series will see the band decades later reveal the truth about why they imploded.
The trailer released Wednesday sees Keough wearing bell bottoms, flowing dresses and knee-high boots as she performs on stages across America in front of thousands of adoring fans.
She tells Claflin’s character, “You write songs about who you want to be, not who you are. What if you wrote songs about the guy who maybe wants things he shouldn’t.
Although taken from the pages of a novel, the teaser features new single Regret Me, one of 24 original tracks written exclusively for the series and recorded by the cast.
The songs will be released by Atlantic Records as the series rolls out, which is from Amazon Studios and Hello Sunshine – and produced by American actress Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter.
The trailer comes less than a fortnight after the death of Keough’s mother, Lisa Marie, who was American singer-songwriter Presley’s only child.
She died aged 54 on January 12, hours after being taken to hospital.
Daisy Jones & The Six launches March 3 with new episodes every Friday until March 24 on Prime Video.
