NEW YORK, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- U.S. soul singer Jill Scott's next album, "Collaborations," will be made up of musical duets from her recording career, Billboard magazine reported.

The new album, due in stores Jan. 30, 2007, will feature 14 of the 34-year-old singer's musical collaborations with artists such as the Isley Brothers, Will Smith, Al Jarreau and George Benson.

The album will also feature duets with rappers Mos Def and Common -- and will act as a precursor to Scott's newest studio album, "The Real Thing," and an upcoming U.S. tour.

One track from "The Real Thing," due out in summer 2007, will be packaged with "Collaborations."

Meanwhile, Billboard said the soul singer currently only has one date scheduled for her upcoming tour -- Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.
