Los Angeles - A new single from Michael Jackson will be released on October 12, according to an announcement Wednesday on his official website.
The single will be called This Is It, which was also the title of the planned comeback tour he was about to begin when he died in June from an overdose of powerful sedatives.
The release, which features vocals from Jackson's brothers, will be followed by the launch of a two-disc album in later July filled with new versions of classic Michael Jackson songs and other new recordings. A film based on footage shot in rehearsals for the comeback engagement is due to hit theatres on October 28.
'This song only defines, once again, what the world already knows - that Michael is one of God's greatest gifts,' said John McClain, co-producer of the album.
