The song -- which features backing vocals by Michael's brothers, the Jacksons -- is part of a two-disc album of music inspired by the upcoming "This Is It" film, which chronicles Jackson's final days rehearsing for his comeback concerts before his death.
"This song only defines, once again, what the world already knows -- that Michael is one of God's greatest gifts," said John McClain, who co-produced the album and is also a co-executor of Jackson's estate.
Eight Mile Style LLC, Eminem's music publisher, had accused iPod maker Apple in a 2007 lawsuit of having used 93 songs in a downloadable format on iTunes without permission.

"Ok, It's Alright With Me," the second single from Hutchinson's full-length debut, Sounds Like This, is currently charting at Hot AC radio and was a Top 5 hit at the Triple A Radio format. In October, Screen Vision will include a two-minute segment of the video for "Ok, It's Alright With Me" in its content packages, which run before the movie previews in Screen Vision's 6,660 U.S. theaters. Meanwhile, his latest single, "Oh!," had an explosive first week at Triple A radio, where it was Most Added.
Hutchinson was the only new artist to score a No. 1 single at the Triple A format in 2008. "Rock & Roll," his first single, topped the Triple A radio chart last December and subsequently hit No. 1 at Pop Radio in Australia, New Zealand and Norway, too. Sounds Like This bowed at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart in September 2007 and re-entered the same chart's Top 10 earlier this month. Originally self-released, Sounds Like This is the highest-charting album ever by an unsigned act on iTunes. - dates
Of a recent LA performance the LA Times said Pete has an "undeniable knack for catchy pop-rock tunes" and The Oregonian described Pete's songwriting as "brilliant" and his show as "richly-layered [and] well-rounded." The Chicago Citizen hailed the arrangements, "expertly weaved together, rich [and] subtly complex." The Palm Beach Post said "Pete spun gorgeously moody tunes" while in New York The Aquarian Weekly observed "the new cuts went over famously with the crowd, who swayed and danced with relish to songs."
Parks had this to say about "The Homeplace": "Recording this second album "The Homeplace" was one of the biggest accomplishments of my career. I never thought I'd be working with someone as talented and knowledgeable as Doug Smith, and the production on this album is beyond what I would have hoped for. I tried to have a portion of my songs blend thematically, that theme being to tell tales of various individuals' lives in the rural South or small towns in general. Three of the songs - The Homeplace, Wild Dogs, and Lambert Road - were stories pulled from my own family history and especially dear to my heart. Other tracks such as Your Chantilly, The Only One Who Knows, and Kicking Dust Off Our Feet also fit the theme. Caves is an odd story, a cavewoman with agoraphobia, basically. I like to fancy that she was a southern cavewoman, but will leave that up for debate. As a singer/songwriter, you want your work to stand out and be a reflection of your own individuality. I am happy with this project because I feel I accomplished that goal, and I look forward to seeing if it stands up against the vast competition in the indie world."
Cook jammed with Haggard and The Strangers for a rockin' hour and a half set that drew out some of country music's biggest names including Vince Gill, Jamey Johnson, Bobby Bare, Kellie Pickler and Joe Nichols.
"Joining 'The Hag' and his band onstage at the 'Mother Church of Country Music' was a real honor," notes Cook. "I haven't 'picked' like that since Alabama left the road!" -
The Mary Onettes' critically acclaimed debut was described as the perfect mix between A-ha and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Now they are back with a grandiose new album. Imagine a Swedish equivalent of The National on a diet of speed, Planet Earth DVDs, and 80's guitar pop singles and you'll have a vague idea of how amazing this is.
