• Sony Music has announced that acclaimed director Spike Lee is hard at work on a documentary celebrating Michael Jackson's iconic 'Bad' album and the singer's world tour. Says the director of the project, "I’m more than just a huge fan of Michael Jackson, and having the chance to actually know him and work with him, I deeply care about his legacy. With this 'BAD' project I was able to uncover just what made this such a huge, important coming of age in his career and unearth compelling stories surrounding the making of the album, the long awaited follow-up to 'Thriller' – the best selling album of all time - the short films and the tour that may have never seen the light of day." Three versions of the 25th Anniversary editions of 'Bad' will be released in Australia on Friday September 21 - a standard double disc release, a deluxe 3CD/DVD edition and a standalone DVD.
