Flack Tackles The Fab Four On New Covers Album

Singer ROBERTA FLACK will pay tribute to her one-time neighbour when she releases her new BEATLES album in April (10).
The Killing Me Softly singer, who once lived above John Lennon and Yoko Ono in New York, has revealed she's halfway through the covers project and is trying to come up with a title.
She tells Spinner.com, "I'm doing a Beatles album for Sony, which will be out on the 21st of April. (It's) all Beatles covers. They did 1,088 songs, so I'm gonna do about 14 of them.
"I've finished about eight, so we're on our way. I have Here, There and Everywhere, Here Comes the Sun, Come Together, Eleanor Rigby, Let It Be, Hey Jude.
"I did a lot of their songs when I was starting to make the transition from being a classical pianist to playing pop tunes in a restaurant and a club. I played a lot of Beatles songs for my new found audience because they were so melodic."
