"Suspicious Minds" debuted Monday as the first single off "Viva Elvis-The Album," which is being released Nov. 9.

The songs on the album, which were produced and arranged by Erich van Tourneau, use thousands of samples of the Tupelo native's music and voice.

The samples make up the raw material for the Las Vegas show "Viva Elvis" by Cirque du Soleil.

Van Tourneau also incorporated elements like garage rock and hip-hop to spice up the songs.

Other reworked songs on the album include "Blue Suede Shoes," "Burning Love" and "Love Me Tender."
