Yesterday marked what would have been the 60th birthday of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and in celebration of the special day, a new single featuring various classic songs by Jackson mashed up and remixed by acclaimed producer and DJ Mark Ronson has been released.
The track, “Diamonds Are Invincible,” is officially sanctioned by Jackson’s estate, and is available now as a digital single and via streaming services. You also can check out the song at Michael’s official YouTube channel.
Among the many Jackson tunes heard in “Diamonds Are Invincible”: “Don’t Stop ‘til You Get Enough,” “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” “Billie Jean,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Human Nature,” “You Rock My World” and “The Way You Make Me Feel.”
Mark said an extended version of the track will be “coming soon.”
Ronson was the DJ last night at the star-studded Michael Jackson Diamond Birthday Celebration, held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, a recently remastered, 3D version of the extended video for Michael Jackson’s song “Thriller” is being prepared to be shown in IMAX theaters.
The video will initially be screened as part of a week-long engagement starting September 21st, and will screen exclusively before the new Eli Roth-directed fantasy film The House with a Clock in Its Walls.
The 3D version of the 14-minute film debuted at last year’s Venice Film Festival.
