Aretha Franklin will release a new album covering classic songs from other female singers.
Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics will be released on October 21.
The new album will include songs such as Gladys Knight’s Midnight Train to Georgia, Barbra Streisand’s People and Whitney Houston’s I’m Every Woman.
The most contemporary track is a reworking of Adele’s hit Rolling In the Deep, which is the first single off the album.
The track will be available digitally from today, when Aretha Franklin, 72, will also perform the song on Late Night with David Letterman.
Great Diva Classics reunites Aretha Franklin with longtime collaborator Clive Davis.
The opening track is Etta James’ At Last, and Aretha Franklin closes the 10-track set with Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares 2 U.
