Andrew 3000 producing Aretha Franklin album
Here's two names we wouldn't have necessarily put together: Andre 3000 will be producing the next album from legendary singer Aretha Franklin, a collection of covers.
“I’m pretty sure it’s going to be fun working with (Andre 3000), just watching his videos and things,” Franklin told Billboard. “It should be fun. And, of course, they all come with great music, so I expect that.”
The 10-song set will be readied for a September release. Fulfilling all your deepest dreams, Franklin doing a take of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” on top of songs like Gladys Knight & the Pips’ “Midnight Train to Georgia”, Barbra Streisand’s “People”, Donna Summer’s “Last Dance” and Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”
