DETROIT, Dec. 22 (UPI) --
U.S. singer Aretha Franklin
claims that her album, "Aretha: A Woman Falling Out of Love," is "the real deal," and has a list of guest performers to back it up.
Gospel artists Shirley Caesar, Karen Clark-Sheard and the rest of Detroit's Clark Sisters, as well as Faith Hill, join Franklin on her album, Billboard.com reported.
Franklin's album is expected to be released during the first quarter of 2007 on her independent Aretha's Records label.
The gospel singer and veteran studio hand Michael Powell wrote songs for "A Woman Falling Out of Love," along with Gordon Chambers and Troy Taylor.
The album was recorded in Detroit, where Franklin lives.
"A Woman Falling Out of Love" will already have a Golden Globe nomination, when it is released, for best original song in a motion picture for "Never Gonna Break My Faith," her duet, with Mary J. Blige for the "Bobby" film soundtrack.
