Michael Jackson: "This Is It" Hear It Now

Michael Jackson: "This Is It"

At the stroke of 12 a.m. (midnight) EST on October 12, a never-before released song from Michael Jackson - a single entitled "This Is It" - was unveiled to the world on www.MichaelJackson.com. "This Is It," a brand new song, marks yet another exciting moment in music history for one of the world's most revered artists; featuring backing vocals by Michael's brothers The Jacksons, the song plays during the closing sequence of Sony Pictures' forthcoming film MICHAEL JACKSON'S THIS IS IT and is on the 2-disc CD set Michael Jackson's This Is It, which is the stand-alone companion to the motion picture. The single artwork - a new photo of Michael taken recently at his Staples Center rehearsals - was also disclosed.

Later this month, Sony Music Entertainment's Columbia/Epic Label Group will release the two-disc album Michael Jackson's This Is It internationally on October 26 and North America on October 27 to coincide with the worldwide release of the motion picture, which arrives in theaters on October 28 and runs for a limited two-week engagement. You can pre-order the 2-disc CD and deluxe 4-disc vinyl set here.
