Khan's first album in nearly 10 years

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Despite a nearly 10-year break, American R&B diva Chaka Khan never doubted she'd put out another album.

"I never really worried about it," said Khan, whose "Funk This" is her first studio set since 1998's "Come 2 My House." "I was always working. I was on the road all the time. I work on the road like I have a CD out, anyway. It's been a very busy 10 years."

Khan said that most of the delay was due to finding the right record company deal; she ultimately hooked up with Sony-distributed Burgundy Records.

"Funk This" was produced by the hit-making Minneapolis team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The album features covers of songs by Prince, Joni Mitchell and Jimi Hendrix, as well as a pair of tracks by Khan's former band, Rufus. She duets with Michael McDonald on "You Belong to Me," which he co-wrote with Carly Simon, and with Mary J. Blige on the track "Disrespectful."
