LOS ANGELES, April 14 (UPI) -- Singer Janet Jackson released a statement Friday saying excitement about her pending album has fueled a barrage of old songs being "leaked" on the Web.
The songs being uploaded on the Internet and advertised as leaked from her upcoming album, "20 Years Old," were actually recorded two years ago with producer Rich Harrison and will not appear on the album, she said.
"A couple of years ago I recorded some tracks with Rich Harrison. But none of that music will appear on my new album," Jackson said. "I have a tight rein on all of the music that has been recorded. So all of the Web sites or blogs hinting that these songs are from '20 Years Old' are false."
Jackson's album is scheduled for release later this year.
