Janet Jackson’s personal label, Rhythm Nation, is set to release her new album this fall and it’ss highly likely she will entertain the audience with some of the new compositions, including old favorites like “All For You”. According to Entertainment Tonight, the upcoming record will be about “the human spirit, love, marriage, Janet’s precious family and her fans.”
The 49-year-old hasn’t performed in front of a live audience since 2011’s Number Ones, Up Close and Personal World Tour. In fact, ever since the sudden, untimely death of her brother and “King of Pop” Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson hasn’t released a single album. Hence, this tour could become an emotional roller-coaster ride for Janet as well as her fans as they jointly remember Michael. Additionally, her last tour focused solely on her greatest hits. Hence the promise of fresh compositions, have her fans trembling with excitement.
