Janet Jackson is too kind. As she prepares to thrill fans at her first of 18 Metamorphosis shows tonight in Las Vegas, the icon has re-released the remix compilation of her Control album, for the first time on all digital and streaming platforms worldwide.
Released a year after the original album in 1987, the alternative version of hits were packaged as Jackson’s first remix album and only issued in select parts of the world, including the United Kingdom and Japan. Comprised of 12 re-imagined tracks, Control: The Remixes features extended versions of the title track and “Nasty,” which were both number one hits.
The digital release of Control: The Remixes comes weeks before Jackson is scheduled to reissue her Control album on vinyl for the second time. Slated to arrive on June 7 via A&M/UMe, the breakthrough LP will be available in two different color options: black and translucent red.
As previously mentioned, Jackson is hitting The Park Theater stage tonight for her Las Vegas residency. She added three additional dates to the show itinerary earlier this week. Tickets for the new dates are available now on Live Nation.
On June 30, Jackson will play night-five of the 2019 Glastonbury Festival near Pilton, Somerset, England.
