It’s been eight years since the King of Pop died, but Michael Jackson‘s legacy continues to thrive.
A new Michael Jackson project, Scream, will be released September 29th, according to Rolling Stone. The Twitter account for the late music icon teased the release late Monday night with a 15-second animated teaser packed with festive imagery. A black cat, spiders and other spooky images imply the release will coincide with this year’s Halloween.
It’s unclear, however, what the upcoming Scream release will actually be. Per Twitter, various posters for the project have appeared in Europe advertising it as, “Michael Jackson Scream: Album Out Sept. 29th.” But John Branca, co-executor of Jackson’s estate, suggested that the project would not feature any unreleased music.
“I don’t foresee us releasing any more unreleased music for quite some time,” he said. “That doesn’t mean there won’t be interesting [new] record releases in the very near future.”
Branca did offer some vague hints in an interview with Variety at the Venice Film Festival on Monday, where a 3-D version of Jackson’s 1983 “Thriller” video premiered.
“Now we have ‘Thriller’ 3-D, and two more announcements are coming up in the next couple of weeks,” Branca told Variety, declining to elaborate further. “Michael had an expression: ‘The quality goes in before the name goes on.’ So we are not ready to announce them yet.”
Check out the clip below and stay tuned for the official release later this month.
