[b]Michael Jackson reveals new single releases[/b] 6 Dec 2005 The star to drop 20 Dual Disc singles next year. Michael Jackson has revealed details of an audacious singles release package for 2006. The global superstar, who has sought refuge from media attention in the Gulf States since the summer, will release 20 of his biggest singles from January to May 2006 on the new dual disc format. According to his label, the release will be the first time an artist has ever used Dual Disc, which contains two sides of audio and video, for a single release. Starting January 23, 2006, SonyBMG will release one single each week for a five-month run, mirroring last year’s campaign for Elvis Presley’s singles reissue. “Thriller” and “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough” are the first to drop, released simultaneously on January 23, followed by “Rock With You”, “Billy Jean” and many other of his biggest hits. The campaign ends May 29th with “Blood On The Dancefloor”. Each Dual Disc single will feature an exact replica of the original 7″ or 12″ artwork, enclosed in a limited and numbered card wallet. All the audio has been digitally re-mastered and will feature the original 7″ or radio edit of the lead track plus a sought after remixes or related songs. “Michael has been fully behind this project and the originality of the first ever dual disc single idea typifies the creativity of one of the most innovative artist in our lifetime,” said SonyBMG’s Darren Henderson. “The quality of each single, having the audio on one side and the video on the other, is a compelling proposition for his fans.’
