The 13-track set features ‘Thriller,’ ‘Dirty Diana’ and new bonus track ‘Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous’ from remixer The White Panda.
As teased on Monday (Sept. 4) on Twitter, Michael Jackson’s SCREAM—a 13-track collection featuring the classics “Thriller” and “Dirty Diana”—will be released on Sept. 29. The project, a collaboration between Epic/Legacy Recordings and The Estate of Michael Jackson, also boasts a newly created bonus track, “Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous.”
Remixed by The White Panda, the bonus track is a mash-up of five songs: “Blood on the Dance Floor,” “Dangerous,” “This Place Hotel,” “Leave Me Alone” and “Is It Scary.” The mash-up premiered exclusively today (Sept. 6) on Shazam, with fans given a two-hour window (7 a.m.-9 a.m. ET) to Shazam any Michael Jackson song and unlock the new track. “Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous” will also be offered as an instant free track with pre-orders of SCREAM digitally and will be available on all streaming platforms.
The announcement of SCREAM follows on the heels of the world premiere of Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D at the Venice Film Festival (Sept. 4). In addition to the CD format (click here to order), a glow-in-the-dark two LP vinyl edition of the album will become available on Oct. 27. Each physical format will feature a unique poster. In turn, the poster and cover art conceal another surprise: the first-ever augmented reality (AR) experience created for a Jackson project.
