Aretha Franklin covered Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” last night on Letterman.
The soul legend will be releasing an album of cover songs later this year. In addition to classics like Eta James’ “At Last,” Franklin will also be covering modern hits like “Rolling In The Deep.”

Franklin’s cover of “Rolling In The Deep” on Letterman last night had Twitter applauding. The studio version, however, people have been less than pleased about.
The Washington Post notes that some people think that the track is overproduced and that music icon is relying on auto-tune.
