More Michael Jackson music is being unearthed from the vaults.
The singer’s estate has announced the release of “Scream,” a collection of 13 of his “most danceable” tracks including “Torture,” “Thriller” and “Dirty Diana.” It will be unveiled Sept. 29.
The set will also feature the bonus track, “Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous,” a mash-up of five songs – including “Dangerous,” “This Place Hotel” and “Leave Me Alone” – by noted remixer The White Panda.
The song is available on all streaming platforms and will be available instantly to those who pre-order the digital version of “Scream.”
The songs on the album were curated with a nod toward Jackson’s love of Halloween. The physical versions of the release will be available on CD and glow-in-the-dark vinyl (available Oct. 27) and each will contain a specialized poster. As well, the poster and cover art contain the first-ever augmented reality experience in conjunction with a Jackson project.

- This Place Hotel
- Blood On The Dance Floor
- Somebody’s Watching Me
