NEW YORK, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- Imitation is the greatest form of flattery and Aretha Franklin is flattering and R-E-S-P-E-C-T-ing fellow artist Adele with a cover of her song "Rolling in the Deep."
On her new album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics, the legend gives a soulful rendition of the 26-year-old British singer's song with a mashup of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
Adele has taken time off since giving birth to her son Angelo in 2012 and to have a vocal cord surgery in 2011. She is rumored to be releasing her next album, 25, in 2015.
"Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics" will hit shelves Oct. 12.
