Jessica Simpson will on Aug. 29 release her first post-divorce album, "A Public Affair," which will be preceded by the single of the same name. As previously reported, the 12-track Epic set features production by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Cory Rooney, Scott Storch and Lester Mendez. Simpson is listed as a co-writer on nine of the songs.

The single was co-written by Simpson and Johnta Austin; the accompanying video was shot over the weekend by director Brett Ratner and includes appearances by Eva Longoria, Christina Applegate, Ryan Seacrest, Christina Milian, Andy Dick and Maria Menounos. It will premiere July 19 on MTV's "TRL."

Fans who pre-order the album from Simpson's Web site will be emailed the new single on July 5 and receive previews of two other songs on Aug. 1. This edition of "A Public Affair" will be bundled with an exclusive DVD.

"A Public Affair" is the follow-up to 2003's "In This Skin," which has sold more than 2.9 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
