We hope you enjoy the official WBSS (lyric) video. Make sure you watch it in 4K, we make sure to give the best possible quality, in this case, to make you feel you are reading the lyrics for the very first time. No need to thank us.

Did the Estate forgot they are dropping an album today? Nothing on social media about it lol.
I can (probably) see how their stance is on this. Michael is not from a world of Instagram, FaceBook, TikTok or Tweets...
His body of work is beyond social media, I think they are saying he and his art is worldwide known already so heavy promotion is hardly needed. I got a "quiet" email which i thought was quite classy. it's already sold out on Amazon...and thriller 4k (now on YouTube) looks fantastic. The title and presentation of the album says it all to be fair..

I was unable to pick this up in-store in the U.S. today. None of the "big 3" stores (Target, Walmart, Best Buy) have this on their shelves.

Somebody a few pages ago suggested that the estate was using this project to test the public reaction to new MJ material.

If so, as dumb of a decision as I think it is, it seems to be a resounding success. T40 is doing great numbers on streaming services, physical copies are sold out (though that may be due to the lackluster distribution), the 4K videos have gotten a lot of attention, and there has been little to no commentary from anti-MJ naysayers. There’s still a public appetite for new MJ material. I just hope the estate takes that fact and does better next year.

It seems they have botched the launch. Someone on another forum said none of their local stores have it, they said they asked target and they said it hadn't even been delivered yet and they don't know when it will arrive. Walmart apparently said they are expecting deliveries on Tuesday.

CDs here in the US use to always be released on Tuesdays. When did it get changed to Fridays? :unsure:

So thriller 4k has the original audio from previously 1983? Not mixed in dolby or anything?
We have the multitracks....isn't it possible for us to do? (I feel kinda stupid for even asking)

Yeah, Thriller 4K has the same audio as the previous 480p version from Vision (i'm ONLY talking about the stereo mix.)
And nah, we do not have them (the multis), we have the vocal session yes, but the song is incomplete and is missing quite a bunch of stuff, it is technically possible to do a recreation, but even then it wouldn't be perfect lol

So there is no documentary? Or the date is fake! There is no Billie Jean 4K either! It was all misinformation? You guys are killing me! No need to answer, all rhetorical questions. I am going to go look at some pictures now.

So a January release date? I don’t see an issue with that whatsoever. My biggest concern is that it’s actually good.
