"Thinking About You" is a song performed by Elvis Presley and originally released on his 1975 album Promised Land.

In January 1975 it also was released on the RCA single PB-10191,[1] as the flip side to "My Boy"[2][3][4][5] (a song from the 1974 album Good Times). In 1977 the single was reissued as part of the black-labelled Gold Standard Series (s/n GB-10489).[6]

The song was written by Tim Baty.

Presley recorded it on December 12, 1973 at the December 10–16 recording sessions for RCA at the Stax Studios in Memphis, Tennessee.[7][8]
