Michael Jackson's 'BAD 25' Tracklisting Revealed, Features New Pitbull And Nero Remixes

Back in May, the estate of Michael Jackson announced plans to reissue the late King of Pop’s classic 1987 album BAD as a deluxe package called BAD 25, in celebration of the album’s 25th anniversary. Now, with the September 18 release of the three-CD/one-DVD set only weeks away, Epic and Legacy Recordings has revealed the track listing for the project.

CD one features remastered original album tracks, including "Smooth Criminal," "Man in the Mirror," "Bad," "The Way You Make Me Feel," "Dirty Diana," as well as "Fly Away" and "Streetwalker," which were added to the BAD album as bonus tracks following its initial release.

On CD two, fans will hear previously-unreleased demo recordings that Michael Jackson created at the studio located at his then-home on Hayvenhurst Ave. in Encino, California. The disc also will feature exclusive remixes by DJs Pitbull, Afrojack and Nero.

To demonstrate Jackson’s creative processes, demo tracks in various stages of completion also will be included in the BAD anniversary package. For example, fans will hear the demo "Al Capone," which was an early incarnation of what went on to become "Smooth Criminal." In addition, there’s a track called "Song Groove" that later became known as "Abortion Papers," which, according to a press release, Jackson "spent considerable time in weighing how best to thoughtfully address something that was, and remains, a very personal and sensitive issue."

The BAD re-release also includes a DVD featuring restored footage of Jackson’s July 16, 1988 concert at the original Wembley Stadium in London. The event was attended by Princess Diana, Prince Charles and 72,000 fans.

The footage was sourced from Jackson's personal VHS copy of the performance (as shown on the JumboTrons during the concert). According to a press release, "The visuals have now been restored and the audio quality enhanced ... in 5.1 surround sound taken from the original multitrack recordings made that night."

Audio of the live performance is captured on CD three of the BAD 25 package.

In addition to the complete Wembley Show, the DVD will also contain "The Way You Make Me Feel" from Jackson's July 15th performance at Wembley Stadium. This is the only song not performed on July 16th due to the late start of that night's show.

Also included are the thrilling early performances of "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" and "Bad" from the Yokohama Stadium performance in September of 1987 during the first leg of the BAD World Tour.
