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... http://t.co/3DQVhahcfV #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.
