Bad's 25th Anniversary Makeover!

 The Michael Jackson Estate in corroboration with Sony and Pepsi-co will embark on a mission to both promote and release The 25th Anniversary edition to Bad! The deal includes 16 oz. Pepsi cans and free downloads of remixes from the album.

 But most importantly, Bad 25 will come as a 3-CD box set. Which will have all the songs you've come to love plus an album full of unreleased gems, a few remixes, and a full live audio CD! In addition, a DVD containing the full unedited 1988 Wembsley Stadium concert will also be included in the package! Two booklets with never-before seen photos of Mr. Jackson in his studio in Havenhurst will come with the territory!

 It appears that Sony is attempting to redeem itself(which is a good thing) from their questionable attempt at giving us Michael. An album riddles with controversy from it's beginning. So far I've heard this anniversary edition will focus more on outtakes but will still contain a couple of reinterpretations by the trio Skrillex, Diplo and A-Trak. Quite unlike Thriller 25. Which almost exclusively featured mixes from Akon, West, and a few others.

 Bad 25 will hit the shelves on September 18th. Just in time to ring in the Autumn season! I'll keep you posted on anything new. This has been an MJ news 411 update!
