Fans are getting Janet Jackson’s comeback album this fall. The singer and BMG announced in a press release posted on her website on Wednesday, June 3 that her first studio effort in seven years, still untitled, would finally come out this fall as her first venture with her newly-launched label, Rhythm Nation Records.
“Janet is not just a supreme artist, she is a unique cultural force whose work resonates around the world,” BMG’s CEO Hartwig Masuch said of the partnership with Jackson. “It is an honor that she has chosen BMG to release her long-awaited new album. We look forward to collaborating with her across every platform.”
Jackson also shared her excitement to team up with BMG, saying, “Thank you to the talented team at BMG, my new artistic home. The opportunity to be creative in music and every form of entertainment has great potential here.”
The diva put out her latest album, “Discipline”, in 2008. She began teasing its follow-up and an accompanying world tour in a video posted on her 49th birthday last month. A few days ago, rumors started swirling claiming that her new single would hit radio later this month.
