A Brand New Me, by Will Saunders

Did you know Aretha Franklin recently released a new album? Well, it’s not technically new. It’s a remastering of some of her old stuff. If you’re a fan of her old music, you’ll most assuredly love it. The album titled, A Brand New Me: Aretha Franklin With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was released via Rhino Records and features London’s Royal Philharmonic.

You might immediately think, “No, thanks!” but don’t think that way. You will be pleasantly surprised, I guarantee it. It includes Son of a Preacher Man, Respect, I Say A Little Prayer, and several other old time favorites. My favorite on the album is “Don’t Play That Song” which is down below.

Incidentally, she is also working on a studio album, featuring some great artists, including Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, and Sir Elton John. It should be another hit, due out very soon in 2018. It was supposed to be out this month, but production is behind schedule allegedly due to some health issues she’s had. Stay tuned. But meanwhile, enjoy the song.

About Will S.

A nouveau Taurus, writing about my view of the world around me. From politics, to social problems, to public corruption, music and movies to pretty much anything I feel inspired to write. We all need meaningful activities and hobbies to add value to our lives and take our minds away from the stress of the real world. Blogging does that for me.
