"Immortal Megamix" is a show-stopping highlight of the Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour show and a showcased track on Michael's forthcoming Epic Records release, IMMORTAL.
Following the premiere on Aol, the "Immortal Megamix" will be available to stream at www.MichaelJackson.com and on Michael Jackson's Facebook page.
Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, November 1st, IMMORTAL will be available for pre-order on iTunes in both the deluxe double disc and single disc edition. Upon completion of a pre-order for the deluxe double disc edition, "Immortal Megamix" will be downloaded instantly.

Esteemed musical designer, Kevin Antunes, worked with Jamie King, the writer/director of the IMMORTAL show, in redesigning and reimagining more than 40 of Michael Jackson's greatest original recordings to synch with the visuals on screen and the live action on stage. After spending a year in the studio working with Michael's original multi-track master recordings, Kevin created a new soundscape to Michael's artistry while preserving the power and familiarity of his unparalleled voice and his legendary tracks.
Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour includes over 100 minutes of Michael's original recordings reimagined for Cirque du Soleil. Placing all of this incredible music onto a single disc proved impossible hence the single disc edition which is jam-packed with nearly 78 minutes of highlights and the double disc edition which offers listeners the opportunity to enjoy music from the Immortal show from start to finish as it is experienced during the performance of the show.
