New Michael Jackson track

Michael Jackson’s forthcoming 'Michael' album has topped the preorder charts across the board.

Play, Amazon and HMV have got Michael holding off competition from Bruno Mars, George Michael, Alexandra Burke, Adele and more.  

A new track from the album called ‘Much Too Soon’ has premiered on iTunes this week on their new Ping feature.  The track was written at the time of Thriller and Michael always liked the song but never found the right home for it;  now it becomes the bittersweet closing to the new collection ‘Michael’.  The song was written by Michael and he also produced the track alongside John McClain.

The first track to be lifted from the album is ‘Hold My Hand’ a duet with Akon and will be available to download on 5th and on CD on 6th December. 

It seems the track has a celebrity fan in Simon Cowell who when asked about the track by TMZ Simon Cowell gave his thumbs up - ‘I’ve heard the new track with Akon and it sounds good’.
