Listen: Unreleased Michael Jackson track
In the no-surprise department, Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley of America hope that the newly-leaked Michael Jackson song that samples the group's classic "A Place With No Name" finds its way to a true release.
"We're honored that Michael Jackson chose to record it and we're impressed with the quality of the track," said the pair in a statement released late today. "We're also hoping it will be released soon so that music listeners around the world can hear the whole song and once again experience the incomparable brilliance of Michael Jackson."
The 22-second snippet of a song called "A Place With No Name" showed up on TMZ. Listen for yourself, but we swear he sings "A Place Without No Name," which would make no sense-or would be a place with a name. Regardless. We're intrigued enough that we'd like to hear more. No word on when the song was recorded, although TMZ reports that the group gave permission for usage of the song years ago.
As many of you recall, Michael isn't the only Jackson to declare himself an America fan (and, really, who isn't?). Janet Jackson had a huge hit in 2001 with "Someone to Call My Love," which sampled "Ventura Highway."
In related news, AP reports that a song LaToya Jackson recorded years ago about her family will be available July 28 on iTunes as a tribute to her late brother. Proceeds from sale of "Home," will go to AIDS Project LA, a charity supported by Michael Jackson.
