If you’ve bought Janet Jackson’s iconic Control album in various formats to keep pace with changing technology, you’ll get a chance to take it back to old-school once again on June 7th. That’s because A&M/UMe is set to release Janet Jackson’s mega platinum-selling third album Control on single vinyl in two different color options: black and translucent red. This will be the first time Control has been reissued on vinyl since the album’s initial release on February 4, 1986. Fans who attend Janet’s newly announced Las Vegas Residency, Metamorphosis, opening at the Park Theater at Park MGM, will be the first to purchase the vinyl albums that will be available in the store with other incredible items.

The music superstar is also gearing up for what promises to be a busy year ahead. Not only was she recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s vaunted Class of 2019, but her Las Vegas Residency, evocatively dubbed Metamorphosis, begins in May and is currently scheduled to run for 15 performances in total through August. She will also make her debut at Glastonbury Festival 2019 and Montreux Jazz Festival this summer.

Control…on vinyl once again!
