“Black Diamond” will be Jackson’s 12th studio album with the new tour featuring the same name.

The tour kicks off this summer, starting in Miami on June 24th. From there, Jackson will visit major cities across the U.S. and Canada before wrapping the North American leg on August 23rd, at the Tacoma Dome in Washington State. The North American route will include 34 shows total.

Janet Jackson’s last album, Unbreakable, was released in October 2015.

Its unclear who’ll handle babysitting duties since the iconic singer is currently estranged from the father of her 3 year old son, Qatari multi-millionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana, whom she married in 2012. The couple’s custody drama has occasionally made headlines.
