King Of Pop Premieres New Music Video on Twitter

Posted: Updated:
Though he's been gone for several years now, new material from Michael Jackson just keeps on coming.

On Monday, the Jackson Estate and Epic Records (the label that owns much of his material and continues to release posthumous songs and albums) announced that a new video was coming from the King of Pop, and it is set to be released in a unique way.

At 10 PM EST tonight, the music video for new single “A Place With No Name” is set to be released via Jackson's Twitter account, marking the first such premiere for the social media site. While artists have always used Twitter TWTR +0.78% to alert fans about new clips on YouTube and the like, viewing videos within tweets is a fairly new feature, and Jackson will likely be the first to actually debut a new video within a single tweet.

Before premiering in full on Twitter, a preview of the video will air on a special Michael Jackson-themed episode of FOX's So You Think You Can Dance. The episode begins at 8 PM EST with a performance by all top eight performers on the show choreographed by the Emmy award-winning Travis Payne, who worked as both back-up dancer and choreographer for Michael Jackson. Every performance during tonight's broadcast will be a rendition of a famous Michael Jackson song, all leading up to the new video.

On top of the television and Twitter showings, “A Place With No Name” will be shown on a massive screen in Times Square in New York City at the same time.

In May - Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake duet "Love Never Felt So Good"  debuted online.

The track was the first single to be released from Jackson's posthumous album Xscape. Usher honored the musician Thursday night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards when he debuted and performed the song in Timberlake's place.

"Love Never Felt So Good" was written by Paul Anka and Kathy Wakefield in 1983. Jackson originally recorded the song with Anka, and the new track is made contemporary with modern instrumentation.

Timberlake announced the release late Thursday night on his Twitter. The singer included the hashtags "#PLAYITLOUD" and "#MJandJT" in the post.

Xscape was released May 13. The album will feature eight previously unreleased, "contemporized" tracks, including "Love Never Felt So Good."

    Marijuana's hazy contribution to highway deaths

    Public officials and safety advocates worry there will be more drivers high on pot and a big increase in traffic deaths as states liberalize marijuana laws. It's not clear, though, whether those concerns are merited. Researchers are divided on the question. Studies of marijuana's effects show the drug can slow decision-making, decrease peripheral vision and impede multitasking.
