Even Michael Jackson’s passing hasn’t stopped him from releasing new music. A new Michael Jackson song entitled “This Is It” premiered at MichaelJackson.com last night (October 12) at midnight. It is the title track for Jackson’s upcoming double-album of the same name.
You can listen to the entire song here:
The new song and “This Is It” album are set to be released on October 27 and are available to pre-order now for just $9.99. There are also some collector’s versions being released, though those are more expensive.
While the official web site doesn’t allow you to download the song, there are many sites that have found ways around that. I won’t link to them here, but if you must own the song now, Google should be able to help you with that. There are even a few different versions of it floating around.
