New CD 'Tina!' is due out in the US on September 30
Tina Turner has recorded two new songs for a compilation CD that will be released just in time for the October 1 start of her comeback tour in Kansas City, Mo.
"It Would Be a Crime" and "I'm Ready" will be found on "Tina!," due September 30 via Capitol. They join 16 hits spanning Turner's career, including "Nutbush City Limits" and "What's Love Got To Do With It."
The digital version of "Tina!" will include different versions of "River Deep Mountain High" and "The Acid Queen" than the CD.
Turner, 68, stopped touring in 2000, saying she did not want to get to the point where her singing and dancing were no longer dignified.
