Janet Jackson will release a new Deluxe Edition of her sixth full-length album, The Velvet Rope on October 7, 2022, exactly 25 years after the original 1997 release date.
The special edition comprises sought-after B-sides and remixes, including two rarities, ‘Accept Me’ and ‘God’s Stepchild’ among the 10 bonus tracks that are now hitting streaming platforms for the first time. Additionally, the compilation includes a number of remixes that were previously exclusively included on CD singles.
The above bonuses include Teddy Riley’s TNT Remix of ‘I Get Lonely’ featuring BLACKstreet, the J. Dilla (Ummah Jay Dee) remix of ‘Got ‘Til It’s Gone’, and Timbaland/Missy Elliott’s remix of ‘Go Deep’. Also included are club mixes of various tracks by David Morales & Frankie Knuckles, Masters at Work, Tony Moran, Jason Nevins and Tony Humphries.
In addition, remastered versions of Jackson’s iconic music videos will also be available to watch on YouTube for the first-time ever in HD.
The multiple platinum album explored themes of female sexuality, mental health and domestic violence through a black woman’s lens, and earned critically acclaim across the board. Pre-order the album here and peep the full tracklisting below.
