There's new Luther Vandross music on the way.

Fans of the legendary singer, who died in July, can enjoy two new tracks when "The Ultimate Luther Vandross" collection is released Aug. 22. It includes the previously unissued songs "Shine," produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and "Got You Home."

The collection features 16 other songs from Vandross' two decades of music-making, including the hits "Here and Now" and "Endless Love."

Vandross sold more than 30 million albums during his award-winning career. Vandross, who began his career as lead singer of the group Change, made his solo recording debut in 1981 with the album "Never too Much." In 2005, he was nominated for a Soul Train Music Award for a duet with Beyonce on "The Closer I Get to You," which is on the new collection.
