HIGHLY ANTICIPATED PROJECT TO
BE RELEASED ON SEPTEMBER 18

New York, NY – Epic/Legacy Recordings in collaboration with the Estate of Michael
Jackson today announced the highly anticipated track listing for the September
18th release of Michael Jackson BAD25
  that celebrates the
legendary album and record breaking BAD tour. Featured in the deluxe package, are
three CDs, two collectible booklets, and the first ever authorized DVD release
of a concert from the record breaking BAD World Tour – the July 16, 1988
sold out Wembley Stadium show in London.

Pre-Order Now

Filled
with previously re-mastered versions of iconic hits and un-released recordings
from the King Of Pop, the BAD25 anniversary deluxe edition CDs and DVD will include the following:

CD
one features re-mastered versions of Michael’s biggest hits on the original BAD
album, including, “Smooth Criminal,”  “Man In The
Mirror,” “Bad,” “Another Part of Me,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” and
“Dirty Diana” arranged in the same sequence as they appeared on the
original album released 25 years ago. “Leave Me Alone” was added to the album
as a bonus track following its initial release and has been included on the
disc.
 
CD two offers fans a rare listen to thirteen additional tracks, 6 of which are previously
unreleased demo recordings created at Michael’s personal studio built at his
then-home on Hayvenhurst Avenue in Encino, California. Also included are all
three bonus tracks from the 2001 expanded edition of BAD, the previously
un-released French version of Michael performing the classic, “I Just Can’t
Stop Loving You,” a high  power version of “Speed Demon” remixed by Nero
and the brand new remix of “Bad” worked on as an electrifying collaboration between
Pitbull and Dutch DJ Afrojack.

Recordings
included in this package reflect the songs and spirit of Michael Jackson’s
artistry during BAD’s recording sessions and have been selected to show the
different stages of how Michael’s songwriting and recording genius took shape.
Some tracks are so complete that any other artist but Michael Jackson –
who worked tirelessly to make sure his songs reflected his vision – might
consider them finished tracks. Others are less complete but offer insight into
Michael’s creative process in its various stages. Included is the demo, “Al
Capone,” an early incarnation of what ultimately became “Smooth Criminal,”
“Don’t Be Messin’ Around,” an example of a more complete demo, and a song
initially titled, “Song Groove.” That song later became known as “Abortion
Papers” which according to Michael’s own records, he spent considerable time in
weighing how best to thoughtfully address something that was, and remains, a
very personal and sensitive issue.

A
true highlight of the package is CD three and the DVD – the never seen
before live concert on DVD and its accompanying music CD of Michael’s legendary
July 16, 1988 concert at Wembley Stadium. The concert is not a compilation of
performances, but rather one complete show, exactly as Michael performed it for
Prince Charles, Princess Diana and the 72,000 fans who were in the audience for
that night’s sold out show. This show was one of the seven record-breaking
nights played at the venue attended by more than half a million people –
three times that many people tried to purchase tickets. The DVD was sourced
from Michael Jackson’s personal VHS copy of the performance as shown on the
JumboTrons during the concert. This footage was only recently unearthed and is
the only known copy of the show to exist. The visuals have now been restored
and the audio quality enhanced so that fans can share in the excitement of that
famous night in 5.1 surround sound taken from the original multitrack
recordings made that night.

In
addition to the complete Wembley Show, the DVD will also contain “The Way You
Make Me Feel” from Michael’s July 15th performance at Wembley
Stadium. This is the only song not performed on July 16th due to the
late start of that night’s show. Also included are the thrilling early
performances of “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” and “Bad” from the Yokohama
Stadium performance in September of 1987 during the first leg of the BAD World
Tour.
