    Arrow New edition of Vogel's book on "Earth Song" is coming out

    From http://www.joevogel.net/:

    New edition of Earth Song book coming soon!

    What’s in the new edition?

    • New material on Michael Jackson’s humanitarian work, one of the most overlooked aspects of his career
    • New insights on Michael Jackson’s powerful short film for Earth Song based on extensive interviews with director Nick Brandt
    • New information on the recording of “Earth Song,” including previously unknown details about the first “Earth Song” demo




    Released in 1995, Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song” was unlike anything heard before in popular music. Protest songs had long been part of the heritage of rock – but not like this. “Earth Song’s” vision was more panoramic, its roots more primal. Its unusual fusion of blues, opera, rock, and gospel resembled nothing on the radio. A massive hit globally, it wasn’t even offered as a single in the United States. Most critics didn’t know what to make of it. Yet decades later, it stands as one of Jackson’s greatest artistic achievements. In this groundbreaking book, Joseph Vogel traces the song’s evolution, from its inception in Vienna in 1988, to its long gestation in the recording studio, to Jackson’s final rehearsal in 2009. Situating the song within the historical context of the Reagan, Bush and Clinton eras, the book also explores the artist’s broader humanitarian efforts, from his participation in USA for Africa to his Heal the World Foundation. Based on original research, including interviews with the song’s key participants, Earth Song: Michael Jackson and the Art of Compassion offers a necessary reassessment of this powerful anthem and Jackson’s audacious efforts to change the world.
