John Legend And The Roots Team Up!
To make a whole album together...
John Legend is teaming with soulful collective The Rootsfor a collaboration album remaking soul and R&B classics - to be called Marvin Gaye, Nina Simone, Roberta Flackand Harold Melvin And The Bluenotes.
John Legend told Rolling Stone Magazine: “Everything is certainly inspired by the original but we took our own creative license with it. I wanted to choose cover songs that were so under the radar, so uniquely interpreted, that it would take you a second to realise that these are cover songs (at all)."
