Say it ain’t so? Aretha Franklin recently announced that she plans to retire after the release of her new album.
Reports Detroit Local 4:
“I must tell you, I am retiring this year,” Franklin said.
Franklin said she is “exuberant” about her new album and “can’t wait to get in the studio.” The album is expected to be released in September, with a tour that includes only select dates. She won’t have more than one date planned per month, and the full tour will last “maybe for six months.”
Franklin spent 56 years as a legendary singer and songwriter.
“This will be my last year,” Franklin said. “I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it.”
Franklin did say she still plans to perform every now and again. But she plans to spend more time with her grand children.
