Dita Von Teese curating and singing on romantic album

Burlesque star Dita Von Teese is releasing an album for Valentine's Day (14Feb16).

The busty model, who was married to shock rocker Marilyn Manson for a year, has curated a compilation of songs featuring Norwegian electronic duo Royksopp, Cat Power, and Blood Orange. Von Teese will also sing on three of the songs recorded by Monarchy and Chuck Henry.

Soundtrack for Seduction will only be released on vinyl.

The 43 year old previously worked with Monarchy on her 2013 single Disintegration.

Dita has turned her hand to a lot of new things lately, including writing her own beauty book, Your Beauty Mark.

As well as divulging her beauty secrets in the tome, she also imparted some advice on how to achieve her signature red lip in an online tutorial for Mode recently.

"I love a really deliberate, sharp perfect line; it's a classic 1940s and 50s style," she said in the video. "I know that some fashion magazines will tell you that a red lip shouldn't be too perfect, but I'm telling you that it should. I always start with a lip liner, as it's essential to getting that really vibrant, red lip, with lots of saturated colour, which I love."

The star is so strict about her look she doesn't have a beauty team, choosing to do her hair and make-up herself.

Dita knows what suits her and when she looks her best, and she won't put herself in a position which could mean her aesthetic is sullied.

"Growing up I was mediocre looking. Even now, I see a photo of myself taken in bad lighting and think I should quit what I do immediately," she told Britain's Hello! magazine,
