Listen: Janet Jackson teases new music + announces tour dates

Today, Janet Jackson unexpectedly shared a taste of what’s to come from her new album with what seems to be an interlude titled “Love J.” via Twitter. The 43 second teaser is accompanied with a handwritten lyric sheet, as Janet sings the lyrics, in full-voice. The snippet seems to be dedicated to her fans; she sings “I’ve lived through my mistakes/ It’s just a part of growing/ And never for a single moment/ Did I ever go without your love/ You made me feel wanted/ I wanna tell you how important you are to me… Love.”

It is a touching ode and the diva sounds fantastic over the mellow music. If this is a hint of what to expect from the project, Ms. Jackson is definitely on the right track.

Meanwhile, on Monday, she dropped a different kind of bomb on the industry: the announcement of her Unbreakable World Tour and the dates for the first, North American leg of the tour. Head over to janetjackson.com for tour dates and details on how to purchase tickets, and preorder Janet’s album.

While the title and release date have yet to be announced, she keeps hash-tagging #ConversationsInACafe. Though, because of the tour’s title, some speculate the album will bear the same name. Meanwhile, her website lists a preorder for her first single, apparently titled “No Sleeep,” along with an animated single cover for the track.
