New MJ single hits airwaves

The track, which features backing vocals by Jackson’s brothers, opens with a soft, soulful introduction and the lines: “This is it, here I stand/ I’m the light of the world, I feel grand.”
It will be available to buy as part of the two-disc album ‘This Is It’ which will hit the shelves internationally on October 26 and in North America on October 27 to coincide with the global release of the Michael Jackson movie of the same name on October 28.

A short collection of clips from the film were also featured on websites showing Jackson and backing dancers rehearsing their routines for a run of 50 comeback shows at London’s O2 Arena which the singer had been preparing for when he died.

The ‘This Is It’ movie was the subject of a $60 million deal between Jackson’s estate and concert promoter AEG Live and Sony Pictures.  Sony Music’s Columbia/Epic Label Group will be releasing the album.

Sony Music said the first disc of the album will feature some of Jackson’s greatest hits plus two versions of the new single. The second disc will include unreleased versions of some of the singer’s classic tracks and a spoken word poem, ‘Planet Earth’, performed by Jackson and never heard before.
