(Radio.com) On June 26, Netflix will air "What Happened, Miss Simone?", a documentary about the legendary blues and jazz singer Nina Simone. In celebration of the film, the filmmakers have compiled a special tribute album, called Nina Revisited.

The album features 16 Nina Simone covers--including 'Ne Me Quitte Pas," 'Feeling Good" and 'I Put A Spell On You" --from contemporary artists like Lauryn Hill, Common, Mary J. Blige, Usher and others.

The album will come out July 10, and now we have the first taste of it: Hill's cover of "Feeling Good." Rolling Stone points out that Lauryn Hill has a strong connection to the documentary through Jayson Jackson, producer of What Happened, Miss Simone?-- he used to manage the Fugees. Read more here.
