Lenny Kravitz Talks Leaked Michael Jackson Collabo
WATCH: The soulful rocker dishes on "Another Day," a tune he recorded with the late King of Pop.
Over the weekend, an unreleased Michael Jackson song called “Another Day” leaked to the web. Unconfirmed reports suggested it was a collaboration with Lenny Kravitz.
This afternoon, Kravitz spoke up (watch video below):
“The version that’s out is not mixed, but… the song was recorded by Michael and myself. I produced it for him, I wrote the song, and I played all the instruments on the track. It was one of the most amazing musical experiences that I’ve ever had. It was done by two people who had respect for each other and who loved music.”
Kravitz said he didn’t know who leaked the tune, and denied any involvement. “[My copy] has been locked up in a vault,” he joked.
The song, which was available across the web Monday morning, has since been removed by Jackson’s label, Sony, which, reports TMZ, never planned to release it at all.
But Kravitz has plans of his own: “I’d like for fans to be able to hear the track in its entirety, the way it was meant to be.”
