With Janet Jackson‘s public profile once again on the rise, there has been increasing calls for new material from the legendary singer. Speaking recently to the LA Times, the 44 year old icon opened up about her plans for her new album.
Find out what she had to say after the jump…
Via the LA Times:
Next up, time permitting, is a new album to work on during 2011. “I’ll just have to fit it in while on tour,” she says, stressing that her new project will not be looking backward or forward. Instead, she plans to stay in the moment.
“No rush, no deadlines, just create, see what I’m feeling, see where the music goes,” she says. “I want to see where I am in my life at that moment.”
Granted Ms. Jackson remains coy about the project, she appears to be getting off to a positive footing this go round. Despite turning in albums which were deserving of more success than they achieved, a consistent critique levelled against her newer material is that it has not been as “inspired” as the more message-driven hits of her heyday. Here’s hoping she finds a balance which satisfies her own artistic expression, as well as the record-buying public. (Although if she returns saying she just wanted to make “happy music”, I won’t be too pleased. For, that has been her promotional script, if you will, for the last 3 LP’s).
