|Aretha Franklin Sings The Greatest Diva Classics Limited Vinyl LP
In the year of the surprise album comes the nicest one of all: Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul, will drop her first new album in many years courtesy of Clive Davis.
The album is a tribute to ten different women, with Aretha re-interpreting their songs. Babyface and Andre 3000 are among the producers, with the Clive Davis the executive producer.
The Queen of Soul has never sounded better; her unique and imaginative phrasing breathes new life into songs she always wanted to record. Davis’s passion for the music, and for Aretha’s career, is not only unabated, it’s more fervent than ever.
The song choices include “Teach Me Tonight,” which Phoebe Snow re-popularized in the 70s, Gladys Knight’s “Midnight Train to Georgia,” Alicia Keys’s “No One,” Barbra Streisand’s classic “People,” Whitney Houston’s (and Chaka Khan’s) “I’m Every Woman, Etta James’s “At Last,” Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” and Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
