It's been a very eventful week for Janet!  A day after playing a successful show on January 11th at the Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, she was rushed to hospital and had to have emergency surgery to remove a subdural hematoma that was putting pressure on her brain.  She had to have a hole drilled into her head to remove the hematoma, and a titanium plate put in to cover the hole.  See her post on Facebook.
And after that, she has just released the new video for the song Candle.  Watch it on YouTube, or below.

Vixen have signed to Rat Pak Records for a new release coming in 2018.  No details given but presumably this is for the live album, at least initially.  You can sign up to the mailing list for news.
