Posthumous Aaliyah CD due in November
Before she died in a plane crash in August 2001, the always-busy Aaliyah managed to record several tracks that have yet to be released. Now, Time.com reports, you’ll be able to hear some of those songs by November, as Blackground Records is preparing an as-yet-untitled CD for release. It’s not clear how many unheard tracks the new release will contain, but they include both uptempo numbers and ballads, Time reports. They’ll be featured alongside some older hits (such as ”Try Again”) and remixes of other back-catalog tracks.
Aaliyah is not the only artist who’ll release new posthumous work this fall. TLC has ”3D” coming out, featuring tracks Lisa ”Left Eye” Lopes recorded before her fatal car crash this April. And Nirvana’s long-awaited retrospective will finally hit stores, featuring ”You Know You’re Right,” the last unheard track Kurt Cobain recorded with the trio before he killed himself in 1994. Both discs are due Nov. 12.
