Christina Aguilera seems more than ready to make a comeback to music industry with her new album "Back to Basics". Speaking about the soon to-be-released set, the pop crooner reveals that she at last decided to expand it into double LP after previously narrowed it down to one.

At Saturday's MTV Movie Awards, during which she performed her new single "Ain't No Other Man", Aguilera confirmed "The first half is based upon working with more beat-driven producers and will use samples and things like that, and then the second disc is all me and (collaborator) Linda Perry."

"The first half of the album is kind of a throwback with elements of jazz, blues and soul music combined with a modern-day twist, like hard-hitting beats," Aguilera continued revealing that disc one has been produced principally by Gang Starr's DJ Premier.

Whereas, of disc two, she commented, "There are no cover songs, so we made more of a '20s, '30s vibe with an authentic and organic twist. There are no samples - it's all live music." "Back To Basics" is due out on August 15.
