Michael Jackson’s upcoming single, “Too Much Too Soon”, was written at the same time he recorded Thriller. Enticed? Set to be a part of a soon to be released posthumous album, the single for the time being released a Ping exclusive. Apparently Apple wants to kick-start its social network for music with a bang.
An official announcement on the matter from Michael Jackson’s official website reads:
A third song from the new Michael Jackson album MICHAEL is now being streamed free exclusively for one week in iTunes Ping, Apple’s new music-focused social network. The song “Much Too Soon” was written at the time of Thriller. Michael always liked the song and would pull it back out of the vaults for each subsequent album project but never found the right home for it; on the new album it finds its place as the bittersweet closing to the stellar collection. The song was written by Michael Jackson and produced by Michael Jackson and John McClain. David Campbell is featured on the strings. MICHAEL will be released December 14, 2010. .
