Michael Jackson, Patti LaBelle Featured on New Paul Anka "Duets" Collection
The year after Michael Jackson released his 1982 classic Thriller, he teamed up with entertainment legend Paul Anka to write the song "I Never Heard." More than two decades later, that song was rewritten into Michael's posthumous single "This Is It," and now a version of the track will appear on Anka's new album of duets.
Called simply Duets, the set also includes "You Are My Destiny," featuring Paul alongside Patti LaBelle. The album's due in stores April 9, to coincide with the release of Paul's book My Way: An Autobiography. It features several new recordings, as well as previously-released duets and recordings that either feature new vocals or new instrumentation.
Paul says in a statement, "Throughout the history of music, there have been all kinds of songs; to me, the classics still reign supreme. This endeavor, these songs, will be easy on your ears; they are the stuff that love and life is all about."
