    I think the acapella is a nice touch but I also feel that some of the emotion was lost without the beat behind the "nanana"s at the end.

    We'll never part; our love is from the heart.

    Well then at least you have both versions. That's what album versions and single versions are for :)

    I didn't realise who big this twitter deal really was until I saw this:
    Twitter @twitter · 12h
    Exclusive on Twitter: First view of @michaeljackson's “A Place with No Name” https://blog.twitter.com/2014/michae...ght-on-twitter

    Twitter itself has 31.6 million followers, and for that shoot out above went to all those 31.6 followers + MJ's own twitter account send it to 1.5 followers, which was retweeted half million times, so potentially it reached around 40 million people?

    Also all the media who spreads the news of this video release and how many readers they gets:clapping: So how many people it really reached could be more than 40 million.

    Great job from people behind this deal:clapping:

    Thank you, it worked! ^_^

    i admit with this video there was an improvement rather than watching a collage of past works. I liked it, it was nice to see some unreleased In The Closet footage but I think the dancers appeared too much, they didn't capture the story of the song and in some moments they looked like they were in a soap opera.

    I'm sorry but why you and some others are so impatient?

    You have this very same song in you album if you bought it, or you can purchase it from iTunes or Amazon as single, or you have possibility to go on youtube and watch and listen it there while waiting single to be ready for purchase.

    Digital singles aren't common anymore. You look at the iTunes chart, it's all tracks from the albums. LNFSG if anyone remembers had a problem with 4 versions entering, eventually just going with the ones from the album. Digitally, it will be the album track that charts, just like it is with any other/most songs on the iTunes chart. It isn't common anymore for a standalone digital single. Mostly, it is the album's version. They aren't doing anything wrong/uncommon - in my opinion people seem to want to hate every move these people make.

    Not sure where you see 4K. It looks like an upscale from SD source.

    While so many have said that the APWNN video is the best out of all the posthumous videos, I sort of agree.. However, I still feel that the unreleased BTM video (with the Jabowokeez, club environment, MJ masks, etc) is the best posthumous video still...

    But for the life of me I'll never understand why that wasn't officially released when it's obvious so much time, effort and money was put into that..

    But still, I'd agree that the APWNN video is the best released posthumous video to date..

    Well done estate and sony!

    I was waiting for a video with storyline too …

    But I have to say that according to the song itself it must have been a dance, dance, dance video !!!

    So that’s what they have done and done beautifully. As for demands for more “story from lyrics” – let’s wait for MJ One video, if, IF it is on the original version of the song and the “circus” is involved, it is more suitable for the storyline that is in the lyrics, IMO.
    レ♥∑ is a temple, レ♥∑ is a higher low …

    New video could make late pop star Michael Jackson the King of Twitter


    PUBLISHED ON AUG 14, 2014 11:32 PM

    A person holding a poster for Xscape, a second posthumous compilation album of previously unreleased songs by Michael Jackson in Santa Monica, California, on June 22, 2014. Michael Jackson's estate and Epic Records decided to premiere via Twitter an accompanying video for the song A Place With No Name which appears on the album. -- PHOTO: AFP







    NEW YORK (AFP) - Five years after his death, Michael Jackson is back with a new video that breaks new ground by premiering on Twitter.
    The late King of Pop - who pioneered music videos in the 1980s with the advent of MTV - had written the song A Place With No Name with loose inspiration of the 1972 folk rock classic A Horse With No Name by the band America.
    Released in May on his posthumous album XSCAPE, Michael Jackson's estate and Epic Records decided to premiere an accompanying video on Twitter late Wednesday in what they said was a first for the social media site.
    The video was also broadcast on an overhead screen in New York's Times Square in coordination with the Twitter debut.
