Janet Jackson Confirms ‘New Music, New World Tour, a New Movement’

After some earlier speculation, Us Weekly reports that Janet Jackson will in fact release new music and embark on a world tour this year.

The famed pop singer made the announcement herself today — which also happens to be her 49th birthday — via a #ConversationsInACafe video, where she appears to be in the studio. Though you can’t see her face, Jackson says in a voiceover, “I promised you’d hear it from my lips, and now you will. This year, new music, new world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening. Let’s keep the conversation going.” Jackson’s most recent release was her 2008 studio album, Discipline.
