Michael Jackson - A Place With No Name

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
Stargate

Hard as it may be to believe, we in the Booth sometimes make mistakes. Sometimes big ones—like missing a brand new, posthumous single and video by the biggest pop star in the history of…. well, ever. But hey, better late than never, right? Loosely inspired by America’s classic-rock hit, A Horse With No Name, A Place With No Name finds the King of Pop showcasing his inimitable vocals over a swung synth beat by Norwegian production duo Stargate. Samuel Bayer directs the accompanying visuals, which feature original material as well as archival footage of Jackson. Fans can find this rendition of A Place With No Name, along with an older version of the cut, on the Xscape LP, available in stores and online as of May.
