Hear Michael Jackson’s New ‘XSCAPE’ Track ‘A Place With No Name’
By Shannon Carlin
Another day, another Michael Jackson track.
All this week, the Sony Entertainment Network blog is releasing a new track off MJ’s posthumous album, XSCAPE. Today (May 7), fans are getting to hear “A Place With No Name.”
The track is the King of Pop’s re-imagining of the 1972 classic, “A Horse With No Name” by America. The song was originally recorded in 1998.
According to Sony, America band members Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley gave Jackson’s remake their blessing: “We’re honored that Michael Jackson chose to record it and we’re impressed with the quality of the track,” they said in a statement. “It’s really poignant.”
Yesterday, fans got to hear “Loving You,” a sweet track about unrequited love, and the day before that were treated to “Chicago,” a Timbaland-produced track that was originally known as “She Was Lovin’ Me.” Last week, they debuted two versions of the track, “Love Never Felt So Good,” one which features Justin Timberlake.
On Thursday (May 8) “Slave To The Rhythm,” a track that surfaced last year with vocals from Justin Bieber and was teased by Timbaland last month, will be released. The week closes out with “Do You Know Where Your Children Are,” a track that was originally leaked back in 2012 and was reportedly about child abuse.
