A new solo piano mix of one of Aretha Franklin's "Silent Night" is out Tuesday (Oct. 16), and it's just as soulful and gorgeous as expected. The holiday classic originally appeared on the late icon's 2008 holiday album This Christmas, which will released on vinyl for the first time on Nov. 16.
"I was thrilled when Aretha called me to produce her long awaited Christmas record. It had been a dream of hers for decades," the album's producer Tena Clark said. "Her beautiful spirit is radiant throughout the record and this new mix of 'Silent Night' showcases what an incomparable force she truly was, both on vocals and piano. There has and never will be a voice like the Queen of Soul."
