A lot more.
Listen now: “Love Never Felt So Good”
About the Song: Originally recorded with music veteran Paul Anka (best known for his work with Frank Sinatra) in 1983, “Love Never Felt So Good” was produced for this album by estate co-executor John McClain. “Michael sounds incredible on this track just like he always does,” says McClain. “He is immortal. And the song is great.” McClain notes Jackson and Anka’s shared love for “melodies and real music… That’s what we need right now.” The producer collaborated with the classical composer Girogio Tuinfort (who previously worked with Jackson and Akon on “Hold My Hand”) on the string arrangement. The result is “a magic collaboration of the new and the original production” that retains the track’s analog, early-80s feel, while echoing the disco-soul inflected music of today.
