    Off The Wall

    2015 Off The Wall re-release (UPDATE: confirmed for February '16)

    On MJ Archives, someone's just posted an interesting video from something called 'MJ Beats' (yeah, me neither) purporting to be about a re-release of Off The Wall in November this year, with "rare and unreleased demos" (yay) and modern remixes with current "hot" artists (meh).

    Has it been reported anywhere else yet? Hope it's not a hoax.

    Translated announcement below...

    I just saw that very same advert and came here to ask about it too lol. If it is real, I am not too happy about the "reimagined tracks" as we all know how pointless and annoying that is.

    An Off the Wall reissue is arguably the easiest possible project the estate will ever have to put together, particularly if it's set up in the same way as the video implies. The original album, some new music/demos and a Spike Lee joint. Is it really possible to screw this up?

    The Wembley concert notwithstanding, Bad25 was honestly a very well put together project. Take the blueprint from that, heighten the positives and fix the negatives.

    Put the entire project in the hands of a good mastering engineer. Give us some more excellent packaging as with Bad25. Some great new songs from the late '70s. And at the very least a decent Spike documentary (which is highly likely if Bad25 is any indicator).

    I'm hesitant but I'm excited to see how this pans out.

    As far as the video itself is concerned, I'm rocking back and forth. It very easily could have leaked early a la the Behind the Mask video, and it looks extremely polished. But then again, there are some enterprising fraudsters with good resources online - who knows?

    Reimagined takes on classic songs seems to be the norm in popular culture.

    There's a new Elvis album coming out in October that puts his vocals over orchestral music and stitches together posthumous "duets" with Michael Buble and II Volo. Same situation - the only differences here are the styles of music and the number of revised songs (a handful for Michael compared to an entire album for Elvis).

    I do agree that it's a pointless endeavor and I largely prefer new material entirely, but hey - Xscape has proven that enjoyment can be found. I'll give them a chance.

    We already got the WDAN Demo Released with DSTYGE. Sunset Driver is already on the Ultimate Collection Album anyway.
    I hope we get Unheard Demo's.

    Ya. And maybe, we get a snippet of a 4 min song, and a song from a storybook, and interviews, and a Spanish version of the first single.
