R&B stars Kenny Lattimore and Chante Moore are planning to unveil a romantic album of duets in time for Valentine's Day. Arista has scheduled a Feb. 11 release for "Things That Lovers Do," which features only two originals -- the title track and "Loveable (From Your Head to Your Toes)" -- alongside covers of 10 R&B classics.

Lattimore and Moore -- who are husband and wife -- tackle such notable love songs as Teddy Pendergrass' "Close the Door," Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's "You're All I Need to Get By," Rene & Angela's You Don't Have to Cry," and Billy Preston and Syreeta Wright's "With You I'm Born Again." "Lovers" is the first album to feature the couple together; Moore has released four solo albums to date, while Lattimore has issued three.

In support of the album, the couple plans to tour in a musical stage play titled "Things That Lovers Do." Directed by choreographer George Faison, the play will loosely follow the life stories of Lattimore and Moore, including when they met and fell in love. The play is scheduled to hit Richmond, Va., Friday (Jan. 17), and engagements are set for Baltimore, New York, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Detroit, Philadelphia, and Chicago through March 30.

Lattimore's latest solo album, "Weekend," his first for Arista, debuted in October 2001 at No. 63 on The Billboard 200. Moore's latest, 2000's "Exposed" (Silas/MCA), debuted at No. 50 on the chart.
