Off The Wall:
Michael Jackson's Original Album And The Documentary "Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown To Off The Wall" Set For Release As A CD/DVD Bundle On February 26, 2016
JACKSON'S OFF THE WALL "INVENTED MODERN POP AS WE KNOW IT"

NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On February 26, during Black History Month, the Estate of Michael Jackson and Sony Legacy Recordings will release exclusive CD/DVD and CD/Blu Ray editions of Michael Jackson's revolutionary 1979 recording, Off The Wall. The package will include the original version of the album bundled with the new documentary Michael Jackson's Journey from Motown to Off the Wall, directed by Spike Lee. The documentary will make its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2016, and its world television premiere on SHOWTIME on Friday, February 5th at 9 P.M. ET/PT on-air, on demand and over the internet. After its premiere on SHOWTIME, it will be broadcast in territories around the world.

THE ALBUM – The importance of Michael Jackson's Off the Wall cannot be overstated. Recorded when he was just 20 years old, the album heralded Michael's stunning emancipation as a singular musical force and creative visionary. It smashed the ceiling on record sales for black artists, ushering in an exciting new era of R&B-to-pop crossover airplay, chart, marketing and sales trends not seen before in modern pop music. It's the record that "invented modern pop as we know it," wrote Rolling Stone. For fellow black artists of the day, Michael served as an illuminating inspiration.

To Black America, Off The Wall transcended music and entertainment altogether. The success of the album marked a level of national and international achievement that conjured pride in a culture that as late as the end of the 1970s was still fighting for the kind of social acceptance that Michael's album received. Because of Off the Wall's indelible influence, 21st century artists as disparate as Beyonce, Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd all have a blueprint they turned to for creating their superstardom.

Written by Michael Jackson, the first single from Off The Wall, "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough", was Michael's first Grammy and first single to hit #1 in the U.S. and internationally as a solo artist. With the singles "Rock With You", "Off the Wall" and "She's Out of My Life" Jackson became the first solo artist in history to have four singles from the same album peak inside the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The album was an enormous commercial success; as of 2014 it is certified eight times platinum in the United States and has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time.

The Music: "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough"; "Rock With You", "Workin' Day and Night"; "Get on the Floor"; "Off the Wall"; "Girlfriend"; "She's Out of My Life"; "I Can't Help It"; " It's the Falling in Love"; "Burn This Disco Out".

THE DOCUMENTARY – Produced by Spike Lee, John Branca and John McClain. For Michael Jackson's Journey from Motown to Off the Wall, director Spike Lee assembles a wealth of archival footage, including material from Michael's personal archive, interviews with contemporary talents and family members, and Michael's own words and image to create this insightful chronicle from the star's early rise to fame through the release of this seminal album. A look at a chapter of his career that is rarely examined, Michael Jackson's Journey from Motown to Off the Wall allows audiences to travel with Michael as he gets his start at Motown, strikes a new path with CBS Records, and forges a relationship with legendary producer Quincy Jones. An illuminated portrait emerges of how an earnest, passionate, hard-working boy would become the "King of Pop."

Partial list of interviews: Lee Daniels; The Weeknd; Pharrell Williams; Misty Copeland, Kobe Bryant; Mark Ronson; John Legend; Questlove; Katherine Jackson; Joe Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Jackie Jackie L.A. Reid and more.

DAS ALBUM - Die Bedeutung von Michael Jacksons Off the Wall kann nicht überbewertet werden. Aufgezeichnet, als er gerade 20 Jahre alt war, läutete das Album Michaels atemberaubende Emanzipation als singuläre musikalische Kraft und kreativer Visionär ein. Er zerschlug die Obergrenze für einen Rekordumsatz für schwarze Künstler, läutete eine spannende neue Ära der R & B-to-Pop-Crossover-Airplays, Charts, Marketing und Vertrieb- Trends ein, die nicht zuvor in der modernen Pop-Musik zu sehen waren. Es ist die Platte, des "eingeführten modernen Pop wie wir es kennen", schrieb Rolling Stone. Für folgende schwarze Künstler der Zeit war Michael eine beleuchtende Inspiration.
Zum Black America, Off The Wall transzendiert Musik und Unterhaltung überhaupt. Der Erfolg des Albums markiert ein Niveau von nationalen und internationalen Erfolg das den Stolz in einer Kultur transportiert, die Ende der 1970er Jahre noch für die Art der sozialen Akzeptanz kämpfte, die Michaels Album erhielt. Wegen des unauslöschlichen Einfluss von Off The Wall haben Künstler des 21. Jahrhunderts wie Beyonce, Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar und The Weeknd hatten alle eine Vorlage für das Erreichen ihres Superstardom.
Geschrieben von Michael Jackson war die erste Single von Off The Wall "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" Michaels erster Grammy und die erste Single mit der er als Solokünstler die Nummer 1 in den USA und interantionla machte. Mit den Singles Rock With You", "Off the Wall" und "She's Out of My Life" wurde Jackson der erste Solokünstler der 4 Singles vom selben Album in der Top Ten der BB 100 hatte. Das Albumm war ein enormer Erfolg, 2014 ist es 8 mal Platinium zertifziert in den USA und hat mehr als 30 Mio. Alben weltweit verkauft und zählt somit zu den best-verkauften Alben aller Zeiten.

Spike Lee on His Revealing New Michael Jackson Documentary and Why Donald Trump Is 'Bananas'

Bild

Your new documentary, Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown to Off the Wall, is a lot of fun to watch. It was the simplest period of his life, wasn't it, before all the tabloid ­headlines and abuse accusations?
Back in 1979, there was no big pressure on Michael for Off the Wall. There were no expectations. It all turned after Thriller -- things get complicated when you sell the most records ever. People got swept up in Thriller, but Off the Wall's my favorite of the three records he did with Quincy Jones. Many people say that in the documentary, too.

His mom, Katherine, says Michael was very hurt when he won only one Grammy Award for Off the Wall in 1980. How much did that motivate him?
Michael Jordan's a good friend of mine. Any ­negative thing someone says to him, he uses that as fuel. When Michael didn't win the Grammys he thought he should have won, it's like, "Alright, motherf--ers. I got somethin' for yo' ass." And that was Thriller.

Michael never seemed like an "alright, ­motherf--ers" kind of guy.
No, he was. Let's not get it twisted: Michael was competitive. Any record he did, he wanted the thing to be No. 1. He was hurt, and he came back with a vengeance.

Did you like Michael?
Yeah. Mike came to my house in Brooklyn. I put on the CD -- this was [1995's] HIStory -- and he said, "Pick any song you want to direct." So I picked "Stranger in Moscow." He said, "No, that's not the one you want! You want to do 'They Don't Care About Us.' " (Laughs.) Michael was slick.

When Michael was making Off the Wall, a lot of people thought his career was over, didn't they?
There were doubts. But Michael never doubted ­himself. He just knew he had been given the freedom to do his thing. And to do that, he and his brothers first had to get out of a Motown contract. And then he had to step away from his brothers, too. Family is a cross to bear.

In the movie, you don't address Michael's accusation that his dad, Joe, was physically abusive. Why not?
Here's the thing, and I appreciate your ­question: So many people focus on the other stuff. We wanted to focus on the music. People might say that's a cop-out. I don't care. Personally, I'm not going to say Joe Jackson was a bad guy. Have you ever been to the Jacksons' house in Gary, Indiana? There were nine kids sleeping on top of each other. He saw talent in his kids, and he made it work. Nowadays, if you hit your kid, you're going to jail. Back then, if you messed around -- I'm just talking for black folks -- you got hit. I don't think children should be beat, but sometimes, upside the head? (Shrugs.) Maybe I'm old-fashioned. And that house in Gary? That should be a national landmark. Alright, President Obama. You've got one year left. (Laughs.)

It seems like Joe was simultaneously the best artist manager of all time and the worst.
Joe's OK in my book. Of course, he wasn't my father! (Laughs.)

Michael's brothers Jackie and Marlon, who have good relationships with John Branca and John McClain, the executors of Jackson's estate, are in the film. But Janet, Jermaine and Randy, who have denounced the executors, are not in it. Why?

They didn't want to be a part of it. It's no secret that there's tension between [parts of] the family and the estate. Any time money's involved, there's going to be static.

There's one thing about your ­documentary that isn't great: the title. Why such a ­cumbersome title?
Wasn't me.

Was the title dictated to you by the estate?
It wasn't me. (Laughs.) Man, I should be running for office right now. That was a true politician's answer, wasn't it? Give me Iowa!

Speaking of: Do you know fellow New Yorker Donald Trump?
I've seen him at Knicks games, before he was running for president. He was a nice guy. But it's bananas now, the stuff he's saying. When he says, "Make America great again"? What great you ­talking about? Great like when women and black people couldn't vote? Great like when gay people couldn't get married? Great like when Bull Connor turned water cannons and German shepherds on people in Birmingham, Alabama? There is a feeling that the stature of the white man is not what it used to be. When you're down on your luck, you look for a scapegoat.

Have you seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens?
My wife and I went to the premiere. I liked it very much. For me, the amazing part was during the opening scene, with the Flash Gordon crawl and the John Williams score. People lost their ­motherf--ing minds! That was powerful. People went ape shit! (Laughs.)

This is your second Jackson documentary -- the first was Bad 25. Do you want to do another one?

I'd really like to do a documentary about Thriller. I've let the estate know, but I've not been given the job yet.

Do you think the success of Thriller was bad for Michael's music? After that, he was ­obsessed with topping it.
Thriller became a monster on his back. Every record after that, he was trying to sell more records. I think there's a cost for that.
