Soul legend Isaac Hayes will continue singing from beyond the grave - his family has a stash of unreleased songs they plan to make public.
The Theme from Shaft hitmaker died after suffering a stroke at his home in Memphis, Tennessee earlier this month (Aug08).
And his son, Isaac Hayes III, has revealed there is a wealth of music the soul singer never put out - including material from his heyday at Stax Records.
Hayes says, "My father had a volume of unreleased work that nobody knows about, from the Stax Records days and beyond. There was often too much material to release at the time, but it's still great music.
"There are some good songs, and music that can be remixed, used for soundtracks, samples, ringtones, so many things. And he was working on a new album when he died. People will be hearing Isaac Hayes for many years to come."
