Almost four months after his death, Michael Jackson fans can hear the King of Pop's voice yet again, as the first of his new songs was released on Monday online and on radio.
The pop star's single "This Is It" is released posthumously.
It will be available to buy as part of a two-disc album that hits market internationally starting from October 26.
"This Is It," was released to the Sony Music office in Kensington, London on Monday and was given to radio stations under high security. The track, which features snapping fingers and backup singing by Jackson's brothers, is one of several songs originally intended to be performed on his comeback tour.
Currently, the song is available at www.michaeljackson.com
Meanwhile, Paul Anka is to get 50% from the sale of the song, in one of the fastest-made deals in show business history, Anka and Jackson's estate agreed on a deal after Anka claimed "This Is It" is a rip-off of one of his songs.
Anka will get other profits as well, but the publishing rights are the big ticket item, and sources say Jackson's estate has agreed that Anka will get half.
Earlier in the day, Anka told TMZ.com that in 1983, he wrote a song with Jackson called "I Never Heard."
After the demo of the song was cut in Anka's studio in Carmel, CA. he says he took the tape to a studio in Hollywood to put the finishing touches on it for Anka's duets album, "Walk a Fine Line." Anka claims Jackson then took the tapes from the studio.
