The late Michael Jackson wrote a lot of songs back in the day. But many of those songs were never released. Well according to CNN.com a new cd containing some of those unreleased songs is scheduled to be released in November.
Michael Jackson’s forgotten music out in November
By Alan Duke, CNN
Los Angeles, California (CNN) — Songs that didn’t make the cut on Michael Jackson albums while he was alive and some forgotten recordings left behind on computer hard drives will be on an album released this fall, sources familiar with the project say.
Jackie Jackson, one of the singer’s older brothers, has been working in a studio to help prepare the album, which will include 10 previously unheard songs, according to Jackson estate spokesman Jim Bates.
Jackson’s estate and Sony Music announced in March that his next album of unreleased music will go on sale in November.
Music producer Rodney Jerkins, who co-produced Jackson’s 2001 album “Invincible,” has been working with Sony to put together the new album, a source familiar with the project said. The source asked not to be identified because he was not authorized by the record label to disclose details.
I hope this cd receives better promotion from Sony than Invincible did.
Invincible is a great cd, yet it didn’t sell as well as Michael’s previous cds/albums due to lack of promotion from Sony.
Anyway I’m looking forward to buying it. I would love for his executors to release the full/extended version of The Lady In My Life. Seems like every song from Thriller was released as a single except for The Lady In My Life which was my favorite song from Thriller.
