New Jackson song hits the Internet

Monday, October 12th, 2009

“This Is It,” a never-before released song from the late U.S. pop star Michael Jackson, was posted on www.MichaelJackson.com Monday.

The single features backing vocals by Michael’s brothers, who are billed as The Jacksons. It will be played during the closing sequence of Sony Pictures’ forthcoming film “Michael Jackson’s This Is It” and appears on the 2-disc CD set “Michael Jackson’s This Is It,” which is the stand-alone companion to the motion picture. The film was shot while Jackson was rehearsing shortly before his June 25 death for a planned series of comeback concerts in London that never happened.

The album is set for release internationally Oct. 26 and in North America Oct. 27 to coincide with the worldwide release of the documentary, which arrives in theaters Oct. 28 and is to run for a limited two-week engagement.

“This Is It” likely won’t be the last new offering from the fallen pop icon.

“We probably have at least 100 songs in varying degrees of being finished,” Rob Stringer — chairman of the Columbia/Epic Label Group, a Sony division — told The New York Times. “And we think there probably is a lot more. We haven’t gone into the archive to search it properly yet. It’s just too complicated to do that.”

Jackson’s mother reaches custody deal with Debbie Rowe

A lawyer for Michael Jackson’s mother says she has reached a custody deal with the biological mother of two of the late U.S. pop star’s children.

Michael Jackson died June 25, leaving behind three children — 12-year-old Prince Michael, 11-year-old Paris and 7-year-old Prince Michael II, called “Blanket.” The two older children were born during Jackson’s brief marriage to his former nurse Debbie Rowe. The mother of Jackson’s younger son has not been identified in the media.

Jackson asked his mother in his will to raise his three children if anything happened to him.

After several weeks of talks, E! News said a deal has been made which paves the way for Jackson’s mother, Katherine, to gain full custody of the children, in exchange for visitation rights for Rowe.

Katherine Jackson’s attorney, L. Londell McMillan, made the announcement Thursday morning on CBS’s “Early Show.”

“It’s an agreement … for the best interests of the children. This is not a money deal. There’s no situation better for these children than to be raised and reared under the care of Mrs. Jackson,” E! News quoted McMillan as saying.

“The discussions were amicable and cooperative, rather than a give and take negotiation,” a source told ABC News. “Both sides cooperated to reach agreement based solely on the best interest of the children.”

Lawyers for Katherine Jackson and Rowe intend to bring the agreement to Los Angeles Superior Court Monday where it is expected to be approved, ABC News said.
