New Jacko Song Next Month

Michael Jackson may be gone, but he is not soon to be forgotten: A new Jackson single, “This Is It,” will be released on October 12, according to The New York Times. Sharing the same name as the comeback tour for which he was rehearsing when he died, the track will be available in two versions, including one with back-up vocals from Jackson’s brothers and former bandmates. A two-disc set, also called This Is It, will then be released on October 27th, complete with Jackson’s spoken word poetry. The following day, Sony’s documentary film Michael Jackson: This Is It, comprised of rehearsal footage from Jackson’s planned concerts, will hit theaters.
