Country legend George Jones has raided the archives for his next album, "Burn Your Playhouse Down: The Unreleased Duets," due Aug. 19 via Bandit Records.

The set features 12 previously unreleased duets with artists such as Keith Richards ("Burn Your Playhouse Down"), Shelby Lynne ("I Always Get It Right With You"), Ricky Skaggs ("She Once Lived Here") and Dolly Parton ("Rockin' Years"), among others.

The songs were recorded from the mid-'70s to as recently as last year. Several of the tracks are leftovers from Jones' 1994 release "The Bradley Barn Sessions" (MCA) and other contributions were extras from 1991's "Friends in High Places" (Epic).

The remaining two songs are "Lovin' You, Lovin' Me," a duet between Jones and ex-wife Tammy Wynette, and "You and Me and Time," featuring Wynette's daughter Georgette Jones.
