In new photos that have emerged online Janet can be seen working alongside producers for an upcoming project in Istanbul. It’s believed that she is currently in Turkey working on an upcoming album with sound engineer Ian Cross and producer Tommy Parker.
Ian Cross posted the images as well as the following quote:
“Music has taken me to some crazy places but I never thought it would bring me here. This is Doha, the capital of Qatar. It occupies the Qatar Peninsula on the northeasterly coast of the much larger Arabian Peninsula. Its sole land border is with Saudi Arabia to the South, with the rest of its territory surrounded by the Persian Gulf.
It’s home for the next few weeks. Qatar is kinda like the Switzerland of the middle east. Very peaceful and neutral in it’s politics. They are a very kind, thoughtful people. And quite frankly, too rich to think about becoming suicide bombers. Janet and I always talked about getting away from it all and recording in paradise. Given her new husband is from Doha we packed up a studio, rented a villa on the beach and came here to make music. I know, I know. I’m one lucky bastard.”
