Apple has released a single from Michael Jackson’s posthumous record, “Michael” on its social network “Ping.” The track’s taken from the Jackson’s of album called “Much Too Soon” which follows close on the heels of previous singles, “Hold My Hand,” which debuted on Nov’23 on Jackson’s official website, and “Breaking News,” which hit the web on Nov’8.
Michael will be released December 14.
“Much Too Soon” has not been met with such derision; comments on Ping are largely positive, as are comments under the announcement on Jackson’s website.
The song will be available in full on Ping for the entire week, yet is not currently up on Jackson’s own site. It’s an interesting move, considering Apple’s social network really has yet to fully take off among musicians and fans.
