Hear Lauryn Hill’s Nina Simone Cover ‘Feeling Good’ – Rolling Stone

To accompany the release of Netflix’s upcoming Nina Simone documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone?, a number of musicians have recorded covers of some of the jazz, blues and gospel icon’s most memorable songs. The compilation Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, which is due out on July 10th, features songs by Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Common, Alice Smith and Simone’s daughter Lisa, among others.

The first to come out as a single is Hill’s sultry rendition of Simone’s 1965 bluesy vocal showstopper “Feeling Good,” which Rolling Stone is streaming exclusively. Hill originally agreed to record two songs for the record, but she became so swept up in the experience that she ended up recording six. She also went on to serve as a producer on the comp alongside Robert Glasper.
