Joe Jackson released “Fast Forward” Oct. 2.

Joe Jackson released his first album since 2012 recently, and it features a four-part format and a slew of different musicians.

For New York, Jackson partnered with Bill Frisell on guitar, Brian Blade on drums, Graham Maby as bassist and jazz violinist Regina Carter. In Amsterdam, he collaborated with the project’s only guest vocalist, 14-year old Mitchell Sink from the cast of the Broadway musical “Matilda.” He worked with acoustic bassist Greg Cohen and Tindersticks drummer Earl Harvin in Berlin. In New Orleans, one of Jackson’s favorite cities, he recorded with an all-local cast of musicians.
