"Dear Janet"

"Janet"… Janet Jackson covers album featuring 16 artists is available via Tin Angel Records.  

"The project has been 7 years in the making and is the brainchild of our good friend Jan Lankisch. After hearing Janet's music for the first time in 1989 he instantly became a fan. 'It blew my mind' he says 'you could call it a first-love experience.' The idea came to realisation in 2008 after meeting the band Dirty Projectors. They spoke about The Jacksons and Jan mentioned how he'd always preferred Janet's records to Michael's, and that it would be fun to pay tribute to her."
