As a first new song released in seven years, and the first from her new label Rhythm Nation Records, Janet Jackson’s No Sleep offers a preview of the singer-songwriter’s latest direction.

“Hey guys, I hope u enjoy this as much as we enjoyed creating it for u,” she wrote of the song, styling it as “NoSL333P” for a Twitter hashtag.

A supplementary hashtag, #ConversationsInACafe, is thought to refer to her upcoming album’s title, even if press materials announcing the No Sleep release would not confirm the name of the long play release set for fall.

Longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis also worked on the track with Janet. Tour dates take Janet Jackson around Canada and the US, including two closing nights in Hawaii, from Aug 31 to Nov 13. – AFP Relaxnews
