Growing up as the King of Rock and Roll's daughter hasn't always been easy.

Lisa Marie, the only child of Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla has been carving out a niche for herself in the musical spotlight.

She is currently promoting her new album 'Storm and Grace'.

SOUNDBITE: Singer Lisa Marie Presley, on whether being Elvis's daughter helps or hinders her music career, saying (English):

"You know it would have definitely been easier for me to take up nursing or planting or truck driving even. But music has been important for me and so has writing my whole life. And so even before I think I was aware of my father."

'You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet' is the first single from the new record.

Presley's famous dad never saw his daughter follow into his musical footsteps. He died in 1977, when Lisa-Marie was only nine.

But the now 44-year-old hopes her late father would be pleased with her.

SOUNDBITE: Singer Lisa Marie Presley, on whether being Elvis's daughter helps or hinders her music career, saying (English):

"I could only hope that he would be proud. I think probably that he would be -- but I can only hope that."

Presley has come a long way since her 2003 debut and its 2005 follow up. Critics call the latest record her strongest yet.

"Storm and Grace" is released in the UK on October 15.
