A posthumous CD is planned for Aaliyah, the singer and actress who died in a plane crash in August 2001.

The as-yet-untitled new CD, due to be released by Blackground Records and Universal in November, will feature an undetermined number of new Aaliyah songs, as well as old hits such as “Try Again” and remixes of other songs in her catalog.

The new tracks, according to Blackground, are a mix of up-tempo numbers and ballads the singer recorded before her death, reported Saturday.

Aaliyah, a two-time Grammy nominee for best female R&B vocalist, was leaving the Bahamas following a video shoot when the Cessna 402-B she was traveling in crashed during takeoff. All nine people aboard died.
