New Michael Jackson single 'This Is It' hits airwaves



Michael Jackson returned to the airwaves Monday with a new song, following in the footsteps of musical giants like Elvis Presley, Otis Redding and yes, Tupac Shakur. Not bad for a guy who died on June 25.

The mid-tempo This Is It, with backup vocals from his brothers (listen to it above), is played during the closing sequences of the documentary of the same name, which opens worldwide Oct. 28 for a limited two-week run, the AP reports. the movie features rehearsal footage shot shortly before Jackson's death, reminding everyone of what a good time they didn't get to see.

The song is available on Jackson's official Web site and was being sent to radio stations. It will also be part of the two-disc CD set that will accompany the movie, continuing the onslaught of media saturation that has plagued us all summer.
