If the past seven years have felt suspiciously rhythmless, fear no more: Janet Jackson is back.

Jackson announced Wednesday she'll release her first new album in seven years this fall.

You will always know it is true when you hear it from my lips... #ConversationsInACafe

"I promised you'd hear it from my lips and now you will," Miss Jackson said in this ethereal teaser video posted last month. "This year: new music, new world tour, a new movement. I've been listening. Let's keep the conversation going."

The as-yet-untitled album, which will be the singer's first since 2008's Discipline, will be produced through a partnership between BMG and Jackson's own record label, Rhythm Nation.

The so-called "artist services deal" will see Jackson retain ownership of her recordings and full oversight over her costs and revenues, BMG said in a statement.

There's no word yet, however, on a first single.


Still, this is news worth celebrating.
