Listen: Unreleased Michael Jackson Song
7 June 2012
An unreleased Michael Jackson track has recently surfaced online. Titled ‘Don’t Be Messin’ Round’, the track was created in 1987 and will apparently be included on the upcoming reissue of ‘BAD’. Originally considered for the Thriller album, then BAD, and then for further projects it never made it onto the final tracklist for any album.
Although the song has received a mixed response from fans, legendary sound engineer and longtime Jackson collaborator Bruce Swedien described the track as mind-blowing “ Michael plays piano on it, and it’s just beautiful.”
The BAD 25 deluxe package is due for release at the end of September and will also feature unseen live footage taken from Jackson’s performance at Wembley Stadium in 1988. This is the first time there will be a full re-release of an album catalogue since his death in 2009.
