Janet Jackson has announced she will resume touring this fall.

The pop star postponed 75 North American and European dates of her Unbreakable World Tour in 2016 in order to have a baby. On Jan. 3, Jackson birthed her first son, Eissa.

Speaking to her fans in a video shared on her website, Jackson noted that her son is “so healthy, so beautiful, so sweet, so loving, such a happy baby.” She also briefly addressed her separation from Wissam Al Mana, saying, “We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.”

As for the big announcement about her tour, which had been hyped by a countdown on her website, Jackson said she has changed its name to the State of the World tour and it will resume Sept. 7 at the Cajundome in Lafayette. Produced by Andrew Hewitt and Bill Silva Presents in association with Live Nation, the initial 56-city run will make multiple stops across the U.S. and Canada, with a final North America date scheduled for Dec. 17 at Philips Arena in in Atlanta.

“It’s not about politics, it’s about people, the world, relationships and just love,” she said.
