  • A compact disc released Aug. 12 in conjunction with the new Elvis Presley forever stamp is being sold through U.S. post offices and online.

Elvis Presley has returned to the pop charts, with a little help from the United States Postal Service.

According to a report by Randy Lewis in The Los Angeles Times, the new compact disc compilation Elvis Presley Forever will debut at the No. 11 spot on the Billboard chart of top 200 albums.

The 18-song CD contains hits from throughout Presley’s career, including previously unreleased versions of If I Can Dream, which was played for the assembled crowd during the Aug. 12 first-day ceremony for the Elvis Presley forever stamp at Presley's Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tenn., and What Now My Love.

The CD is only available at local post offices and through the stamp store at usps.com. It sells for $9.99.

Lewis reports that the CD sold 27,000 copies in its first week.
