Sony Music Canada invited me to celebrate the launch of Michael Jackson’s upcoming SCREAM album during the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The party took place on the 44th floor of the newly opened Bisha Hotel at KOST Restaurant. I enjoyed getting a preview of KOST before it opened to the public, you can read more about KOST here. The party was lit; drinks were flowing and there was no shortage of good eats. The moment you stepped out of the elevator, you were transported into Michael Jackson world. There were several screens showcasing the songs from the album and video footage of the King of Pop. Now on to the most important news of the evening:

On September 29th, Sony Music , in collaboration with The Estate of Michael Jackson, will release Michael Jackson SCREAM, a collection of 13 of his all-time most electrifying and danceable tracks including ‘Ghosts’, ‘Torture, Thriller’, and ‘Dirty Diana’. Additionally, SCREAM includes a newly created bonus track, ‘Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous’, a high-energy five-song mashup from the acclaimed remixer The White Panda who has created a seamless new musical experience.

Why now and why these tracks you might be asking?

The choice of tracks for SCREAM reflects The King of Pop’s affection for this time of the year and its themes of costumes and disguise, darkness and light, character transformations and surprise.
