Nearly 270 Michael Jackson tracks will be packed into the exclusive iTunes digital anthologies (iTunes.com/MichaelJackson) The Indispensable Collection and The Ultimate Fan Extras Collection to be released today by Epic/Legacy Recordings in collaboration with The Estate of Michael Jackson.
The Collections are the most comprehensive packages ever released showcasing The King of Pop’s body of work. The Indispensable Collection includes such classic Michael Jackson albums as Off The Wall, Thriller, Bad, Dangerous and Invincible as well as breathtaking concert tracks from Live at Wembley, the historic 1988 London performance from Michael’s record-smashing Bad tour. The Ultimate Fan Extras Collection includes captivating early demos, creative collaborations and innovative remixes that underscore Michael’s artistic genius.
The Indispensable Collection has been mastered specifically for iTunes (iTunes.com/MichaelJackson), ensuring the delivery of the music to listeners with increased audio fidelity, more closely replicating what the artists, recording engineers, and producers intended. Individual Michael Jackson albums have also been mastered specifically for iTunes and will also be available today.
These releases coincide with the June 29 premiere of Michael Jackson ONE, a new immersive music experience which is the second collaboration between The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil and which will be in permanent residence at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The partnership’s previous collaboration, the touring show Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, was one of the top-grossing tours in the world in 2012 and is now playing to sold-out arenas in Asia.
