Janet Jackson sent fans into overdrive last night when she officially announced the ‘State Of The World Tour.’
Now there’s more reason for excitement.
In a press release touting the trek (which is a continuation of the ‘Unbreakable Tour’), the singer’s team revealed that fresh material is near.
The STATE OF THE WORLD tour is a continuation of the Unbreakable tour and will include fan favorites from her chart-topping ‘Unbreakable’ album, an array of her socially conscious music she’s released throughout her career, and other smash hits and soon-to-be released new tracks with a state of the art live production!
If it wasn’t apparent before, it’s crystal clear now that it’s back to business on all fronts for the 50-year-old legend.
It would appear changes in her personal life (giving birth and recent split from her husband) have her driven to make a mark all over again.
‘Unbreakable’ was a strong reintroduction after years in hibernation; it also provided a solid framework for what a “Janet Jackson” album should sound like in the contemporary age.
That said, we’d love to see her continuing to experiment musically while catering to her core fans. We’d personally love to her open up on record about her recent hardships; we’d also love to see her skew more uptempo. Jams like ‘BURNITUP!,’ ‘Dammn Baby,’ and ‘Night’ were clear favorites on her last LP.
High-profile collaborations would be cute too.
In any case, we’re buzzed for new Janet. Are you?
