2015-06-05 08:38

New York - "Let's Wait Awhile"? Not really. Janet Jackson is releasing her first album in seven years this fall.

The pop icon said on her website on Wednesday that the album, not yet titled, will be released on her own label, Rhythm Nation Records, via Bertelsmann Music Group.

She announced last month in a minute-long video that she was returning to music, with plans to launch a world tour. The news became a hot topic on social media.

Jackson said in a statement that "the opportunity to be creative in music and every form of entertainment has great potential here".

Her last studio album was 2008's Discipline. Jackson's catalogue of hits dates back to the mid-1980s, ranging from What Have You Done for Me Lately to That's the Way Love Goes to All for You.
