Aretha: A Woman Falling Out Of Love is a studio album by Aretha Franklin, her second since leaving Arista Records. It features duets with Ronald Isley, Karen Clark-Sheard, and her son, Eddie Franklin. Duets with Richard Marx and Faith Hill were also recorded, but ultimately shelved. Although recorded in Detroit in 2006, it took the artist five years to find a distributor for the project.

Massacred by critics, the disc peaked at a disappointing #54 on Billboard's album chart and dropped off the chart two weeks later, reportedly selling less than 20,000 copies in the USA. The disc's opening track, "How Long I've Waited", peaked at #91 on Billboard's Soul Chart.
