Janet Jackson is reissuing five more of her classic albums on vinyl, after having already reissued her 1986 album Control last month.

Jackson will reissue 1987’s Control: The Remixes, 1989’s Rhythm Nation 1814, 1993’s Janet, 1997’s Velvet Rope, and 2001’s All For You on vinyl, and all five of the new releases will hit shelves on the same day, July 26.

The date coincides with the start of the second run of the Rhythm Nation hitmaker’s “Metamorphosis Las Vegas residency,” which will start on July 24 and run until July 31.

She already wowed crowds at the Park Theater at Park MGM resort with her first run of shows, which she performed from May 17 to May 26.

The production sees Jackson peel back the layers of her immensely private life, sharing her transformation from a young girl with issues of self-esteem to global icon.

The centerpiece of the thought-provoking show is Jackson herself, captivating audiences through their senses with electrifying visuals, explosive dance numbers, chart-topping hits, and fan-favorite deep cuts. Fans will follow her path to self-love, empowerment, motherhood, and activism, amidst the challenges faced along her personal journey.

She also encourages attendees to find their own light within themselves through her “Metamorphosis.”
