Words are circulating that producer Anthony 'L.A.' Reid will conduct an exclusive listening party for Janet Jackson's forthcoming album, "Discipline". Reid will host the party in New York on Wednesday, February 6.
"Discipline", the tenth studio album from Jackson, is set to be released on February 26 via Island Def Jam. She has explained the story behind the titling of the album, saying "Well, I guess if I go back to the beginning I see a little girl, 10-years-old, who's appearing on 'Good Times' and sets her own alarm clock to wake up at 5:30 AM in order to be at work by 7."
She added, "Then I think about a 15-year-old starting to make records. For the next 25 years, she makes an album every two or three years without fail. Going a little deeper, she learns that the music most connected to her heart has a rhythmic and harmonic complexity that requires work. That means hours and hours trying to compose lyrics and melodies that ring true; hours and hours in the studio layering the vocals that contain the different voices she hears inside her head. Then, of course, the months she spends planning and executing world tours, one after another."
Jackson further added that it was a naive decision when she named her 1986 album 'Control' for now she realized that "the only one who really has control is God. But it took discipline - the discipline of thought, the discipline of action, the discipline of creating music - to make me see that. Finally, discipline has to do with faith. I have faith that a gentle but steady discipline will let me continue to grow as an artist and a woman."
