Randy Jackson has lined up his first gig since leaving "American Idol."

The former TV judge is teaming up with Motown icon Smokey Robinson for a duets album due out in the fall. Jackson will produce the collection, which will be released by Verve Records.

The track list is expected to include songs written by Robinson for his solo career, his former group The Miracles, and for other artists.

The album will feature both "contemporary and classic artists," though there's no word yet on pairings.
