To go with the current Immortal World Tour from Cirque Du Soleil, an compilation of album is being released (the soundtrack to the show). It follows similar ideas from The Beatles Love Album and would be a more interesting to listen to than your average ‘best of’.
From the Press Release on Michaeljackson.com
New York, NY – On November 21, Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release IMMORTAL– the highly anticipated musical tapestry for Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour. IMMORTAL will be released as both a deluxe double disc version and single disc.
Led by esteemed musical designer, Kevin Antunes (Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Madonna) IMMORTAL takes a fresh, creative approach in redesigning and reimagining more than 40 of Michael Jackson’s greatest original recordings into a compilation that allows listeners to experience his music in an entirely new way. After spending a year in the studio working with Michael’s original multi-track master recordings, Kevin created IMMORTAL which offers listeners a new soundscape to Michael’s artistry while preserving the power and familiarity of his unparalleled voice and his legendary tracks.
Personally, I really hope that this is released in Surround Sound like the Love Album was other wise I won’t be rushing out to get it.
Also the trial of Michael Jackson’s personal Doctor, Conrad Murray is under way. You can find BBC News and Sky broadcasting it during the day.
