Michael Jackson's New Single "This Is It" Scheduled For Release Oct. 12

Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” will be released as a single on Oct. 12. The track, which has not been released before, feature background vocals by Jackson’s brothers. There are two versions of the song and both are included on the soundtrack to the documentary “This Is It.”


The song can also be heard over the closing credits of the documentary “This Is It,” which will offer advance screenings starting Oct. 27. The film will have a limited run of two weeks.

“This song only defines, once again, what the world already knows — that Michael is one of God’s greatest gifts,” said John McClain, a co-producer of the This Is It film and soundtrack and a co-executor of Michael Jackson’s estate.

The soundtrack and the film will be available for consumption starting October 27th.

The soundtrack is a double album. The fist disc contains original album masters of the songs featured in “This Is It” and in the order they appear in the film. This disc concludes with the two versions of “This is It.”

The second disc contains previously unreleased versions of the King of Pop’s hits as well as an unreleased spoken word track of a poem written by Jackson titled “Planet Earth.”

Fans will also be blessed with a 36-page commemorative booklet stocked with photos of Jackson’s final rehearsal for his planned This Is It concerts.
