Michael Jackson’s “Scream” album set for release on September 29

Epic/Legacy Recordings, in collaboration with The Estate of Michael Jackson, will release Michael Jackson “Scream”, a collection of 13 of his all-time most electrifying and danceable tracks including Ghosts, Torture, Thriller, and Dirty Diana.  Additionally, “Scream”,  includes a newly created bonus track, Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous, a high-energy five-song mashup from the acclaimed remixer The White Panda who created a seamless new musical experience.  

Starting today, fans will be able to access the Blood on The Dance Floor X Dangerous, mash-up of Blood on the Dance Floor, Dangerous, This Place Hotel, Leave Me Alone, and Is It Scary.  The mash-up by The White Panda premieres exclusively on Shazam where for the two hours between 7am-9am ET fans can Shazam any Michael Jackson song and unlock the newly imagined track.

The track will also be offered as an instant gratification track when you pre-order “Scream”, digitally and will be available on all streaming platforms.

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.  The album will be available in two physical formats, CD and glow-in-dark vinyl (available October 27) each containing a poster unique to the format.  Fittingly, the poster and cover art conceal the first ever AR (augmented reality) experience created for a Michael Jackson project.

Each track on “Scream”,  is remarkable in its own way. For example, Dirty Diana, was the fifth consecutive No. 1 song from the album “Bad” which shattered records for consecutive chart topping singles off a single album; “Thriller”, penned by Rod Temperton, was the seventh of an unprecedented seven Top 10 singles from Thriller, the biggest-selling album of all time; and the Top 5 hit Scream is the only duet between Michael Jackson and his sister Janet.  Also included are fan favorites from The Jacksons’ albums, Torture and This Place Hotel (the first single to be written, composed, and arranged solely by Michael); and, making its first appearance on a Michael Jackson album, Somebody’s Watching Me, the international 1985 hit by Rockwell featuring an iconic hook sung by Michael.

“Scream”, is available for iTunes pre-order now: https://MichaelJackson.lnk.to/SCREAM_itunes

Fans are invited to Official Michael Jackson “Scream”,  Album Celebrations this fall. These celebrations 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.  An after party will follow.
