MJ Music DayMJ Music Day With Brad Buxer. 12-09-'17

The On The Line Association, which offers its first event to meet Brad Buxer (musical director) and Michael Prince (sound engineer), both privileged collaborators and friends of the King of Pop, has just posted a video about YouTube with a teaser for this essential rendezvous of this last quarter 2017.

The MJ Music Day, which will take place on November 18th, will offer you an exceptional and unprecedented visit to France, during which you will immerse yourself in the intimacy of the music of Michael Jackson and or you can share (benefiting from a translation direct and interactive) unique anecdotes about his songs, his personality and his life.

Relive the HIStory Tour behind the scenes and discover the secrets of the Jackson sound by attending a preview of the Gareth Maynard film "King of Sound", dedicated to Bruce Swedien.

Better than a master class or a conference, a real chance, to live a time of friendship, exchange and sharing with two close friends of Michael Jackson, from the afternoon to dinner.

Not to mention the presence of authors Brice Najar, Isabelle Petitjean and Hector Barjot, and Jacksonian exhibitors.

Scream CD Album CoverMichael Jackson's Estate Details 'Scream' Compilation. 06-09-'17

Epic/Legacy Recordings and Michael Jackson's estate have curated 'Scream', a new compilation of Jackson's "most electrifying and danceable tracks" set for release on September 29th.

The 'Scream' album pulls famous songs from 'Thriller', 'Bad', 'Dangerous', 'HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I', 'Blood On The Dance Floor: HIStory In The Mix', 'Invincible' and the posthumous album 'Xscape'. In a statement, Epic/Legacy Recordings noted that, "the choice of tracks for 'Scream' reflects The King of Pop's affection for this time of the year and its themes of costumes and disguise, darkness and light, character transformations and surprise."

In addition to the songs from Jackson's solo LP's, 'Scream' includes two songs that appeared on records by the Jacksons – 'Torture' and 'This Place Hotel' – plus Rockwell's 'Somebody's Watching Me', which featured Jackson on hook duties. 'Scream' also features one newly created piece of music, 'Blood On The Dance Floor X Dangerous', a bonus mash-up put together by production duo The White Panda.

Michael Jackson’s Estate along with Sony Music will release a new compilation album on CD and digitally on September 29th, followed by a glow-in-the-dark vinyl on October 27th. Both formats will include a collectible poster with which you can unlock an immersive augmented reality experience with your mobile phone.

'Scream' is one of several projects that Jackson's estate has in the works. "Now we have 'Thriller 3D', and two more announcements are coming up in the next couple of weeks," estate co-executor John Branca explained recently. "Michael had an expression: 'The quality goes in before the name goes on.' So we are not ready to announce them yet."

Track list:

1.This Place Hotel
3.Blood On The Dance Floor
4.Somebody’s Watching Me
5.Dirty Diana
7.Leave Me Alone
14.Bonus Track: Blood On The Dance Floor X Dangerous (The White Panda Mash-Up)

Fans are also invited to official Michael Jackson ‘Scream’ album celebrations later this year. These will take place in six major cities around the world: Paris, London, Sydney, Berlin, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. The events will include screenings of Michael’s seven short films from the ‘Scream’ album including the full-length 40 minute Michael Jackson’s ‘Ghosts,’ rarely seen following its initial screening at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival.
