Epic Records Set To Release IMMORTAL The New Album From Michael Jackson On November 21
A MUSIC TAPESTRY FOR THE CIRQUE DU SOLEIL SHOW MICHAEL JACKSON THE IMMORTAL WORLD TOUR KICKING OFF LAST NIGHT

NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
On November 21, Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release IMMORTAL – the highly anticipated musical tapestry for Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour. IMMORTAL will be released as both a deluxe double disc version and single disc.

Led by esteemed musical designer, Kevin Antunes (Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Madonna) IMMORTAL takes a fresh, creative approach in redesigning and reimagining more than 40 of Michael Jackson's greatest original recordings into a compilation that allows listeners to experience his music in an entirely new way.  After spending a year in the studio working with Michael's original multi-track master recordings, Kevin created IMMORTAL which offers listeners a new soundscape to Michael's artistry while preserving the power and familiarity of his unparalleled voice and his legendary tracks.

Kevin Antunes comments, "Michael's legacy as the greatest entertainer of our lifetime is inspiring beyond words. It was clear from the start that Michael's voice and overall musical essence was the sole/soul source of creative energy driving the project. From the studio to the stage, there's an undeniable integrity and resolute truth in Michael's vocal performances that are highlighted in the Immortal arrangements. It was built with love and respect for Michael's music, his family, and his millions of fans around the world."

IMMORTAL is sure to touch the hearts of passionate Michael fans as the album unfolds his musical legacy with redesigned versions of his hits, electrifying mashups and newly discovered outtakes fans have never heard before including an alternate take on the Jackson 5's "ABC" and a choir that Michael recorded for "They Don't Really Care About Us."

Statement from John Branca about the Immortal album (MJ Estate)

“I’m very appreciative that a number of Michael’s fans were able to come to Montreal to see the rehearsals and share in the creation of this wonderful new show. The show has only gotten better since then, and the reviews have been extremely positive, as Michael deserves.

What also excites me is the opportunity it provides for those just discovering Michael for the first time. As much as Immortal is for Michael Jackson fans, it offers new fans a magical journey into Michael’s music, his dance and his compassion for others. The show’s creative team, led by writer/director Jamie King, have done a masterful job of weaving Michael’s songs, choreography, videos, voice, and, most important, Michael’s spirit into this experience.

The Immortal soundtrack album will be released on November 21. Kevin Antunes worked with Jamie King in reimagining Michael’s original recordings for the show, as they sync with the visuals onscreen and the live action on stage. The music is incredibly exciting, and it stands on its own as a listening experience. While no one can improve upon Michael’s music, these remixes, mashups and enhancements, while intended for the show, give us the chance to hear Michael’s music in a new and fresh way. All in all, we think it is a must-have album. My favorite way to listen to the album is from start to finish because it brings back vivid memories of the Immortal show, but I also enjoyed listening to the music before I ever saw the show.

The physical album is available for pre-order now. The digital album will be available for pre-order on iTunes on Tuesday, and people who pre-order the deluxe version of the digital album will be able to download the Mega Mix single immediately. This will be everyone’s chance to hear one of the show-stopping highlights from Immortal, and begin to understand how incredible this album really is. The single track will also be available for purchase.

Because we all love Michael and believe that he is the greatest artist of all time, we want to encourage Michael’s fans to unite in a worldwide campaign to support this album during its first week of release – November 21-28. We are asking for everyone to help the album debut as high as possible on charts around the world.

This is for Michael – he deserves it!

John”

Mixed bag of tricks and treats from Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson

The season’s other notable posthumous compilation, Michael Jackson’s “Immortal,” has a more celebratory lineup, powered by groove-heavy mashups, embellished remixes, outtakes and alternate versions of the King of Pop’s biggest hits.

The hefty repertoire – whose standard and deluxe editions feature 20 and 27 cuts, respectively – serves as the soundtrack of Cirque du Soleil’s lavish, Vegas-style production, “Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour.” The collection doesn’t really add much to the singer’s rich discography, but it’s hard to resist the magical hooks its arrangers conjure up in the album’s mix-and-match charmers.

Notable tracks: “The Immortal Megamix” is a vibrant fusion of his dance hits, like “Can You Feel It?,” “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” “Billy Jean” and “Black or White.” Then, “The Jackson 5 Suite” will remind you of Michael’s impeccable artistry and the diversity of his music, while the rousing “Dancing Machine/Blame It On The Boogie Medley” retraces the singer’s Motown roots.

Devised by 10 topnotch choreographers, Cirque du Soleil’s latest arena show features more than 20 theme-driven production numbers that feature hip-hop and dance, acrobatics, martial arts, sports, mime and contortion acts, all strung together around Jackson’s immortal tunes!
