マイケルの大ヒットアルバム『Bad』期の未発表曲がリリース決定!

"キング・オブ・ポップ" マイケル・ジャクソンは残念なことにこの世を去ってしまったが、たくさんの未発表曲やデモを残してくれていた。


それらの音源は恐らく順を追って何年にも渡り徐々にリリースされていくとみられているが、<The Atlantic>によると、大ヒットアルバム『Bad』期にB面用にレコーディングされた未発表ナンバー「Don't Be Messing 'Round」が早くもリリースされるようだ。

印象的なピアノリフが鳴り響く中、パーカッシヴなリズムとうねるシンセがファンキーなナンバーだが、当時の豪華なサウンド・プロダクションから考えると他の主録曲に比べいささか地味だったのかもしれない。結局アルバムに収録されることはなく、ついに今日まで日の目を見ることがなかった。

「Don't Be Messing 'Round」は、今年中にリリースされる予定の25周年記念盤『Bad 25』に晴れて収録されるとのこと。音源の試聴はこちらから
