Unheard Michael Jackson songs to be released

wacko jackoProducer Fred Jerkins III – of production duo Darkchild – has claimed he plans to release previously-unheard Michael Jackson tracks.

 

Fred Jerkins III – who produces with his brother Rodney under the name Darkchild – claims to be working on a project incorporating music and video footage featuring the ‘Beat It’ singer, who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009.

 

Speaking during a masterclass at specialist college Access to Music in Birmingham, West Midlands, England, he said: “We have a number of unreleased songs and all sorts of video footage.

 

“There’s a project in the making right now that will include all those songs.”

 

The producer worked with Michael on his 2001 album ‘Invincible’ and says their sessions together were the highlight of his career because the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker was so “relaxed” and “fun”.

 

According to the Birmingham Mail newspaper, he said: “I worked with him for two years exclusively – it’s the biggest highlight of my career.

 

“He came to our studios in Pleasantville, New Jersey, and we built a really strong relationship and became really good friends.

 

“I remember him, just for fun, riding on a three-wheel bike in the parking lot that belonged to someone with disabilities.

 

“He was really relaxed. It’s things like that that you wouldn’t expect from Michael Jackson.

 

“We were comfortable with him as a family and my son had his fifth birthday at Neverland.”

 

Fred also discussed his work with another late musical icon, Whitney Houston, for whom he co-wrote songs including ‘It’s Not Right (But It’s Okay).’

 

He said: “It’s very difficult when you see people like Michael and Whitney passing on because we had a close relationship with both of them.”
