According to a release from Arista Thursday, Houston’s album, her first in seven years (since 2002s “Just Whitney), has officially been green-lit for September 1. Earlier this year, producer/songwriter’s Diane Warren and David Foster weighed in on Houston’s new project stating: “Whitney is a girl that everybody would like to see come back and, in this case, it really would be a comeback. A lot of people say, ‘Come back? I never left.’ But Whitney did leave and she hasn’t recorded in about 10 years, I believe. So this truly would be a comeback,” said Foster.
