Word in the internet streets is that Janet Jackson is working on a new album! Vocal producer and sound engineer Ian Cross confirmed to Barefoot Mag that he and his good pal, Janet Jackson, have been putting in work for her new album.
Ian Cross shares that the two have been flying coast to coast to work on her new music. Ian shares with the magazine, “…we’ve been working in Qatar. We’ve been working in Paris, the Middle East, and now we feel like we can work anywhere.”
Ian also gives us a heads of what we already knew was the case, the album is going to be stellar. B. Scott reports that Ian Cross says, “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.”
Ian shares the inspiration behind the sound of Janet’s album, “The new paradigm of music, the real people in music now, are blending technology and music together. It’s becoming more and more seamless. I find that the direction, not just of the music, but the concept of making albums is changing and developing so quickly and rapidly. We’re going to be doing things that are completely unexpected that nobody’s seen before. We apply that to the music in the album itself and that’s why we only want to work with the best of the best. We’re bringing in some of the best people on the planet to work on this record. We’ve got the best rig, the best speakers, and we’re doing a lot of new and interesting things.”
