Spike Lee is set to release a documentary celebrating the 25th anniversary of the late King of Pop’s Bad album.

Bad will be re-released September 18th with additional songs, a DVD, and other bonus treats, but that isn’t the only thing fans can look forward to. Lee has given his time and energy to create a documentary about the album and singer, saying, “You don’t have to be a Michael Jackson-head to enjoy this.”

Lee also added, “This year we’re going to focus on the ‘Bad’ album, we’re going to focus on the 25th anniversary, but at the same time we’re going to play his full catalog, including the Jackson 5 and the Jacksons. It’s going to be even bigger and better this year.”

What can people expect from the documentary? Lee went on to say, “We have footage in this documentary that no one’s ever seen, stuff that Michael shot himself, behind-the-scenes stuff. We had complete access to the vaults of Michael Jackson. … He wrote 60 demos for the Bad record. Only 11 made it. So we got to hear a lot of that stuff, too, so it was just a great experience.”

This is not only an ode to Jackson, but the legacy and influence he left behind. In a recent interview, Lee revealed, “We really divided it into two things: Artists today who were influenced by Michael, and then people who worked side by side — musicians, songwriters, technicians, engineers, people at the label, who were all committed to Michael, to the follow-up to the biggest record of all time, which still is Thriller.”

The documentary has no official date yet, but the world can expect to see it sometime later this year.

About sunnymenagerie

Socially awkward in most situations most 25 years olds would call easy, that’s me. TV is my soul mate, Music is my mistress and writing is my best friend. Without those three things, I’d be in an insane asylum calling myself Rosa Parks, refusing to sit in the back of the so called bus. I know more about pop culture and celebrities than I do about my family history, and I’d like to keep it that way. Words I live by: We´re all tiny books in one big compilation called life. Some of us will wait for what seems like forever for our climactic part to come. Others will have a romance novel their entire life. Or maybe one filled with just adventure. Or one that is a poetic tragedy. Then, there are those that will have best sellers. You know, the ones that everyone wants to read and base their versions on? Don´t forget the little paperbacks sold at the carwash that only a select few will ever lay eyes on. We´re all born with the power to either take what was written for us or choose our own adventures.
