Diana Ross' first new studio album in more than seven years, "I Love You," will arrive this week in the United States via Manhattan/EMI. The 15-track set is already available abroad; it will also be sold domestically in a CD/DVD edition featuring behind-the-scenes studio footage and a photo gallery.

Ross worked with collaborators such as producers Marylata E. Jacob, Peter Asher and Steve Tyrell on "I Love You," which opens and closes with Harry Nilsson's "Remember." Says Ross, "These songs, these singers, these musicians and all my fans are a gift of love to me."

The track list also includes the Marvin Gaye-popularized "I Want You" (which was co-written by Ross' brother T-Boy), the Bacharach-David staple "The Look of Love," the Beatles' "I Will" and Bill Withers' "Lovely Day." One new song, "I Love You (That's All That Really Matters)," was penned by longtime Ross backing vocalist Fred White.
