Their first since 1989...
In an interview with Billboard, Jackie Jackson spoke about the Jacksons' upcoming new album, which will be the first since 1989. Here are highlights:
On having the Jacksons together again: "I'm so happy all the brothers will be together in Las Vegas. During the day time they can finish recording and then do the shows during the evening time."
On how the album sounds: "It sounds like Jacksons music, with today's sounds. People still want to hear that Jackson 5 harmony; we can't get away from where we came from. That's what they want to hear. But there's a lot of new flavors we can combine that with. Something like Bruno Mars' 'Treasure,' that's like on old Jacksons song. When I first heard that song I said, 'That could have been on one of ours!' "
On singing Michael Jackson's solo songs: "We love singing them. That's our brother, and people want to hear those songs and it's very emotional as well because we try to do the best we can with them. It's kind of a like a tear-jerker moment, but we manage to do OK with it and really enjoy it and people have a great time when we're singing those songs."
