New Michael Jackson song and album due next month

Posted on

Michael Jackson fans will be singing his newest song two weeks before his behind-the-scenes documentary, This Is It, comes out on Oct. 27. Sony will release the single, “This Is It,” on Oct. 12, and a two-disc album featuring classic Jackson tunes will follow on the day of the film’s release. The first disc of This Is It, the album, will include two versions of the new single, and many of Jackson’s greatest hits, arranged as they will appear in the film. (Jackson’s brothers provided the backing vocals on the new song.) The second disc will be composed of previous unreleased versions of Jackson’s classic singles and a poem entitled “Planet Earth.”
