The new single from Michael Jackson, entitled This Is It, will be released posthumously on October 12th, followed by a 2-disc album of the same name on October 27th. The album release will coincide with the worldwide premiere of the film documenting the King of Pop’s preparation for his comeback show – both the film and the show are also called This Is It.
“This song only defines, once again, what the world already knows – that Michael is one of God’s greatest gifts,“ said John McClain, co-producer of the album and co-executor of his estate.
The firsc disc will feature the original album masters of Michael’s greatest hits arranged in the same order as they appear in the film, ending with two versions of the never-released This Is It. And, of course, the new single features backing vocals by the Jackson brothers.
Disc two offers unreleased versions of his classic tracks, including a spoken word poem from Michael entitled Planet Earth. It also includes a 36-page commemorative booklet with exclusive pictures of his last rehearsal.
