Janet Jackson is gearing up to return to the music scene with a new album, Billboard reports.
The "All For You" singer's longtime vocal producer/engineer Ian Cross revealed in an interview with Barefoot Sound that he's been in the studio with Jackson recording fresh material.
"The Janet Jacksons of the world can’t just spend their time in one studio in one city anymore…we’ve been working in Qatar. We’ve been working in Paris, the Middle East, and now we feel like we can work anywhere," Cross said. "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."
This news comes six years after Jackson's last record, Discipline, which featured hits like "Rock With U," and "Feedback."
**UPDATE: Janet Jackson issued the following statement on Twitter:
If there is a new project, you'll hear it from my lips.
