For the Record: Avicii and Robbie Williams Team Up for The Days

  • Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics comes out this month, and will include covers of tracks by Etta James, Alicia Keys and Barbara Streisand, as well as her take on Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep”, with a splash of Marvin Gaye added:
