The King of Pop’s family are planning to record a new song using the late star’s voice, according to his brother Tito
The Jacksons are planning to record a new song featuring their late brother Michael, says Tito.
The King of Pop died 2009 at the age of 50 but his brother, 67, has revealed Michael “left a few things behind” that he and the band could add vocals to and create a new track.
He said: “It would be so pleasing to be on a record with Michael once again. Anything that would work we would be willing to give it a try and see what happens.
“It’s definitely a brilliant idea.There’s more music to release. They [Jacko’s label] have music. They always try and get our participation and we’re always happy to offer.”
Tito, who is performing with The Jacksons at the Happy Days Festival tonight in Esher, Surrey, says plans are in place for a new album.
When asked about the possibility of a first studio release by the brothers since 1989, he said: “Yes, I think so. We’re thinking about doing something, so hopefully that will come to fruition.”
Michael’s last recording with The Jacksons was on 1984’s Victory, two years after his solo smash, Thriller.
Meanwhile, Tito – who has just released a new album, Under Your Spell – also revealed there could be a third generation of Jacksons entering the music business.
He said: “I wouldn’t mind having a few grandkids who were superstars, that would be nice.”
In June, Michael’s daughter Paris took to social media to reflect on the loss of her father who died in 2009.

The model – who was only eleven when her pop singer father died at the age of 50 – marked the sad anniversary with two snaps of her and the Thriller hitmaker as well as a video from her childhood.
Paris can be seen smiling as she hugs her dad in the first photo – which has been edited with photoshopping wizardry to merge a recent photo of Paris with a throwback image of Michael.
She then uploaded footage of her dancing with her dad as a tot alongside sibling Prince and penned atop the clip: “12 years…RIP…love and miss you, daddy.”
The final photo was another altered image that stuck together a recent offering of Paris and her mother Debbie Rowe alongsid a throwback image of the King of Pop.
