MICHAEL JACKSON SCREAM ALBUM FEATURES A PLAYFULLY SPOOKY AUGMENTED REALITY EXPERIENCE – OUT TODAY! ‘OFFICIAL’ MICHAEL JACKSON “THRILLER” REMIX BY DJ PRODUCER STEVE AOKI IS OUT TODAY AS A STAND ALONE SINGLE

New York, NY (September 29, 2017) – Today, Epic/Legacy Recordings, in collaboration with The Estate of Michael Jackson, release Michael Jackson SCREAM, a collection of 13 of his all-time most electrifying and danceable tracks including Ghosts, Torture, Thriller, and Dirty Diana. The CD and collectible glow-in-the-dark 2LP vinyl (the latter available October 27) release of SCREAM contain an exclusive poster from which fans can launch the first-ever augmented reality experience created for a Michael Jackson album. The album includes the bonus track, “Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous,” a 5-song mashup from the acclaimed remixer The White Panda.

In addition to the new SCREAM album being released today, The Estate of Michael Jackson joined forces with world-renowned superstar producer DJ Steve Aoki to create an ‘official’ remix of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. The Michael Jackson “Thriller (Steve Aoki Midnight Hour Remix)” is out today as a standalone single; available for download and streaming here: https://MichaelJackson.lnk.to/scream_pl!pr “Thriller,” written by Rod Temperton, is the title track from the best-selling album of all time. THRILLER is the first and only album to be RIAA certified 33x Platinum and has topped 105 million sales worldwide.

ABOUT SCREAM – The immersive “Scream” AR experience is like nothing fans have seen before. Reflective of Michael Jackson’s own innovative thinking, Sony and the Estate have teamed with Shazam to make it possible for Shazam app users to just point the Shazam camera at the posters to launch the activation. It is the first time that Shazam has made an AR experience integrated with a CD or vinyl release available to its users; it also marks the very first global AR initiative for Shazam.

In addition, SCREAM billboards and posters will begin to appear in major global cities today which also include a Shazam logo that can be used to trigger a second augmented reality experience inspired by the album’s cover artwork.

Sony and the Estate worked closely with the multi-platform creative studio Flight School to create this exclusive experience which incorporates audio from the recently released SCREAM bonus track, “Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous.”

(Los Angeles, CA – September 26, 2017) 21 Savage is coming for you!

The multiplatinum-certified rapper, artist, and visionary launches the Numb the Pain Tour across North America this fall with support from New Orleans spitter Youngboy NBA. The headline run begins November 16 in Austin, TX at Stubb’s, rolls through major markets everywhere, stops at Rolling Loud in Los Angeles on December 17, and closes out December 23 in Mobile, AL at Soul Kitchen.

Known for his real, raucous, and rowdy performances, 21 Savage has cemented himself as one of music’s most incendiary presences. Nobody is safe when he lands in your town this fall.

21 Savage’s full-length major label debut album, Issa Album [Slaughter Gang/Epic Records], clinched #2 on the Billboard Top 200 upon arrival as it moved over 77,000 copies first-week. It also went #1 on the Apple Music Hip-Hop/Rap Chart. Moreover, the lead single “Bank Account” continues to make waves. Not only did it earn an RIAA platinum certification, but it also became his highest charting single—peaking at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. To date, Spotify streams exceed 132 million and YouTube/VEVO views surpass 66 million-plus.

Right now, he graces the cover of EXIT MAGAZINE. Check it out HERE.

Numb The Pain with 21 Savage this fall.

Tearing through the game with tenacity, 21 Savage carved his own path to the top of 21st century hip-hop last year. Following a series of 2015 fan favorite mixtapes such as The Slaughter Tape and Slaughter King, he sent shockwaves through rap with the Savage Mode collaborative EP alongside super producer Metro Boomin. Not only did the project earn an RIAA gold certification, but it spawned the double-platinum “X” [feat. Future] and platinum “No Heart.” In between supporting Young Thug on tour and selling out his own headliner, 21 uncorked the platinum “Red Opps.” Now, he changes the game with ISSA.
