Aretha Franklin Covers Adele, Details New ‘Diva Classics’ Tribute LP

Adele is one of the most acclaimed soul singers of her generation. But now she’s earned major “Respect” from the all-time greatest, Aretha Franklin, who’s shared her cover version of “Rolling in the Deep.” Franklin gives the 2011 smash a fiery makeover, tossing off melismatic vocal runs and even incorporating the chorus from Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s Motown classic “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Related: Where Does Aretha Franklin Rank on Rolling Stone’s List of the 100 Greatest Singers? The cover tune, available to stream below, is the first single from the 72-year-old Franklin’s new covers LP, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics , out October 21st on RCA Records.  The album’s track list spans numerous eras and styles of soul – from Etta James’ bluesy 1960 staple “At Last” to Sinéad O’Connor’s minimal 1990 pop ballad “Nothing Compares 2 U” to Alicia Keys’ anthemic 2007 R&B smash “No One.” In addition to singing throughout, Franklin also plays piano on a version of the Supremes’ “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.” The album was co-produced by Franklin and Sony Music Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Clive Davis and features additional production work from André 3000, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Harvey Mason Jr., Terry Hunter and Eric Kupper. A limited edition vinyl will be available for pre-order on September 30th, and select retailers are offering a download of Franklin’s “Rolling in the Deep” with digital pre-order.  Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics track list.  1. “At Last” (Etta James Cover) 2. “Rolling In The Deep” (Adele Cover) 3
