A career-spanning box set covering nearly 60 years of Aretha Franklin music will be released by Rhino on July 30.

Franklin’s reign as the Queen of Soul will play out across four discs on the new box set that includes songs from every label she recorded with.

The box set, titled ARETHA, arrives on CD ($59.98) and digitally.

Among the collection’s 81 newly remastered tracks, 19 are making their CD and digital debuts, including alternate versions of classic hits, demos, rarities, and live tracks, like her stunning performance of “(You Make Me Feel) Like A Natural Woman” at The 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors in 2015.

The collection is accompanied by liner notes written by Rochelle Riley and David Nathan. The collection also features stunning artwork by Makeba KEEBS Rainey.

Rhino’s new boxed set will arrive shortly before the premiere of Respect, the highly anticipated biopic about Franklin’s life starring Jennifer Hudson. Both single CD ($15.98) and 2-LP ($31.98) versions featuring 20 highlight tracks from the box will also be available on the same day.
