New Michael Jackson Song Hits The Airwaves, Hear The Demo
You can imagine all the songs Michael Jackson has in his vault. Most artists write 20 to 30 songs for a 10 song album. I'm sure Michael was no different, and take into account he hadn't released an album for a few years toward the end of his life.
The new song "Love Never Felt So Good" was written with Paul Anka and Kathy Wakefield in 1983, one year after Thriller took off. It gets new production from John McClain and Giorgio Tuinfort, and Timbaland who is the executive producer.
According to Rolling Stone, L.A. Reid said, "When I first went into Michael's archives and heard the in-the-raw version of the song you're about to hear, I was instantly reminded that, yes, Michael Jackson is the greatest."
The song is very much like some of the stuff that was featured during his Off The Wall album and Thriller album. The production is very good and stays true to the time of the song while making it contemporary.
The new album "Xscape" will feature songs written by Michael with other writers and himself, and will be from different years which should give the album a nice variety sound. The album is scheduled for May 13, and will be a regular version and the deluxe version, featuring demos of the original version that Michael had produced.
