Speaking about the late Queen of Soul's previously unreleased song, Bryan Adams reveals that it had been sitting on his computer for years before he heard that Clive Davis was making a film of her life.

AceShowbiz - A previously unreleased version of Aretha Franklin's "Never Gonna Break My Faith" has dropped to mark the 155th anniversary of the end of slavery in America.

The track, originally released as a duet with Mary J. Blige in 2006 as part of the soundtrack for the movie "Bobby", was released on Friday (June 19) as part of America's Juneteenth celebrations.

The new version of the Bryan Adams song features the late Queen of Soul singing with The Boys Choir of Harlem.

"Run to You" singer Adams reveals he had Aretha's solo version of the tune on his computer for years.

"When the song was demoed, I told the producers that Aretha would be the one to sing this - and sing it she did," he said in a statement. "This solo version has been sitting on my computer for years, and when I heard Clive (Davis) was making a film on Aretha's life, I sent this version to him. The world hasn't heard her full performance and it really needed to be heard. I'm so glad it's being released, the world needs this right now."
