Listen To A New Version of Aretha Franklin’s ‘A Natural Woman’ With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Nick Patrick and Don Reedman can’t lie. Part of the allure of producing A Brand New Me: Aretha Franklin With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra — whose version of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” is premiering exclusively below — was a chance to play with the Queen of Soul’s original vocal recordings from the 1960s.

The 14-song set (12 on LP), due out Nov. 10, pairs those vintage vocals with new orchestrations the British duo put together with the Royal Philharmonic at Abbey Road Studios, along with new backing vocals by Patti Austin.
