Aretha Franklin Is Retiring

In a recent interview with a Detroit TV station Aretha Franklin says she’s retiring this year after putting out one more album, but she still plans to do one-off performances here and there.

She said, “Several of the songs are going to be produced by Stevie [Wonder] . . . it’s kind of multi-[directional] . . . we’re not pigeonholed to any one thing.” The album is going to be released sometime in September.

She also mentioned, “This will be my last year. I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it. [I’ll still do] some select things . . . one a month, for six months out of the year.”
