Paul Rodgers releases I Can’t Stand The Rain lyric video

Paul Rodgers has released a lyric video for his cover of the Ann Peebles classic “I Can’t Stand The Rain” as a preview of “The Royal Sessions”, a collection of classic R&B and soul songs redone by the Bad Company singer that is due next week.

Recorded at Memphis’ Royal Studios, historic home of Willie Mitchell and Hi Records, "The Royal Sessions" features Rodgers’ interpretations of songs by Sam Cooke, Albert King and Ann Peebles, among others.

Produced by Perry Margouleff, “The Royal Sessions” pairs Rodgers with an all-star roster of legendary musicians who played on the original hits dating back to the '60’s. The classic rhythm section includes Reverend Charles Hodges (Hammond B3), Michael Tolls (guitar), LeRoy Hodges Jr. (bass), “Hubby” Archie Turner (Wurlitzer), Steve Potts and James Robertson Sr. (drums), The Royal Horns and the Royal Singers.
