    Whitney Houston is making her comeback.

    NEW YORK — The date for Whitney Houston's comeback has been set.

    Arista Records says her long-awaited album will be released Sept. 1. Houston hasn't released a CD in seven years.

    So far, there's no word on a title for the album.

    The 45-year-old superstar is one of the best-selling artists of all-time, but in recent years, she's been defined more by drug problems, marital woes and erratic behavior than by her Grammy-winning voice.

    But lately, Houston has appeared to return to her pop princess form. She wowed the crowd when she performed at her mentor Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party in February.
