Music fans will be able to get their hands on a new single (and a two-disc album) from Michael Jackson next month.
The single, aptly titled “This Is It,” will be released on October 12. The song will be featured on Michael’s forthcoming double album, This Is It, that’s slated to drop on October 27.
The first disc will be packed with the original master versions of fan favorites, but it closes with two versions of “The Is it." And the song reunites Michael with his brothers as the Jacksons provide backup vocals on the track.
But MJ devotees will be in for a treat with disc two that boats previously unreleased music and “Planet Earth,” a never-before-heard spoken word poem by the fallen icon.
