It’s been six years since the release of Janet Jackson’s last studio album, “Discipline”. Well Janet fans around the globe may find a little peace, seems there’s a new album in the works. And the news comes from a very reliable source, vocal producer and engineer Ian Cross.
In an interview with studio speaker company Barefoot Sound, Ian confirmed what many of Miss Jackson’s have been praying for:
“Janet [Jackson] and I had a little bit more of a special relationship because we became friends naturally,” Cross told Barefoot of their ongoing working relationship. “You meet a lot of people and you become friends with a couple of them, but sometimes there is one person you become really good friends with…She asked me to work on an album with her called Discipline in 2007 and, again, just do the same thing, produce the vocals. That led to her hiring me full-time to work with her. That’s where I’m at now.”
And what can we expect from Ms. Jackson? “The new album is going to be great. It’s a process. There’s a lot in store, yet to come. I can’t go into too many details but I think Janet Jackson’s fans are going to be very excited about the new album, and I think people who don’t know her as fans are going to be excited about it, too.”
