Anything Janet Jackson does it’s ‘all for you.’ The global icon, who is one of the most commercially successful artists of all time, has announced five of her groundbreaking albums will receive an encore vinyl release.
Set to arrive on July 26 via A&M/Virgin/UMe, the re-pressing roll out will include 1989’s Rhythm Nation 1814, 1993’s janet., 1997’s The Velvet Rope, and 2001’s All For You. The remix compilation to her third album Control, which she made digital for the first time in May, is also a part of the reissues.
Her path-breaking album Rhythm Nation 1814 will be available for the first time on double black vinyl. The updated edition will feature rare recordings, including interludes and unaltered tracks that were left off the original vinyl release. Fans can also get their hands on a limited-edition silver vinyl of the album, which turns 30 in September.
Both janet. and The Velvet Rope are making their debut vinyl appearance on double black discs in the U.S. The former album will also come in a limited-edition clear vinyl. The hidden gem “Whoops Now” heard on the CD and digital edition will be listed on the track listing. “Can’t Be Stopped,” the buried track on The Velvet Rope, will be available on both the black and deep red vinyl options.
Jackson’s innovative LP All For You will be re-released on two black LPs. The album will also be made available in picture-disc form on August 23.
Jackson, who performed at the 2019 Glastonbury Festival in June, is set to return to Las Vegas for the second leg of her Metamorphosis residency on July 24. She will conclude the run on July 31. She will reboot the string of shows on August 2 and will wrap on August 17.
