A particular version of Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall album will launch on Feb. 26 by way of Sony Legacy Recordings. Together with the 1979 LP, a brand new documentary titled Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall will even be included. Directed by Spike Lee, the movie will take a look at the King of Pop’s rise from baby star to cultural icon.
Airing on Showtime on Feb. 5, the primary trailer from the documentary has been launched on-line. Together with archival footage, it options new interviews from The Roots’ Questlove, and The Weeknd. “I’ve all the time used Michael as, at the start, a vocal inspiration, and Off the Wall was undoubtedly the one which made me really feel like I might sing,” says the XO singer within the preview. “I discovered my falsetto due to Off the Wall.”
Pharrell Williams, Mark Ronson, John Legend, L.A. Reid, Kobe Bryant and Misty Copeland alongside Jackson’s mother and father Katherine and Joe Jackson and brothers Jackie and Marlon Jackson will all seem within the Journey, which premieres Jan. 24 on the Sundance Movie Pageant previous to its Showtime broadcast.
