Toni Braxton's new album, More Than A Woman, will hit store shelves on November 19, backed by a huge promotional plan. The disc, which will contain 14 tracks (including production by Rodney Jerkins, Babyface, Big Bert (Brandy's husband), Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, The Neptunes, and Irv Gotti), is the follow-up to the double-platinum Heat, and last year's Christmas set, Snowflakes.

More Than A Woman will contain two tracks co-written with Ashanti and Brandy. Braxton and husband Keri Lewis, who wrote and produced the majority of her last two albums, will do so again. "No More Love," the hip-hop heavy tracked that was leaked to radio by Gotti earlier this summer, received a mediocre reception at radio, but it also piqued the interests of Braxton's fans, so its failure to hit is less significant for Braxton.

The first single from the album will be "Hit the Freeway," featuring Loon and Pharrel. "It's really hot, very James Brown–sounding, actually," says Braxton. The track will be produced by the Neptunes and will premiere on AOL First Listen. New York City radio station Hot-97 leaked the track on September 13. A video for the song will be shot in a few weeks and it will premiere during an episode of BET Access during the week of October 2. In addition, the track will be remixed by Hex Hector. (Braxton's past four remixes went No. 1 and "Un-Break My Heart" won the first dance Grammy award.) Other tracks on the disc include "Lies, Lies, Lies," "What You Need," "Selfish," "Me and My Boyfriend," "No More Love," "A Better Man," and "Let's Talk" (featuring Kelly Price.)

In addition to the BET appearance, Braxton & VH1 are currently producing an episode of VH-1 Behind the Music as well as a segment for Lifetime's Intimate Portrait. Braxton will also make a slew of promotional appearances over the next few months including: Woman/Woman Rock for Lifetime's Breast Cancer Concert, The Tonight Show, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Wayne Brady Show, Late Night with David Letterman, an NBC Today Show outdoor concert, and the lighting of the Christmas tree at New York City's Rockefeller Center. Braxton will also grace the cover of Vibe Magazine in December.
