Last night (July 13) the video for Michael Jackson's new posthumous single “A Place with No Name” premiered on Twitter. The clip, directed by Samuel Bayer (Nirvana, Green Day), features shots of a couple meeting in a desert setting along with behind-the-scenes footage of Jackson from his 1992 video “In the Closet,” which co-starred Naomi Campbell. The new video marks the first time a music video has debuted on Twitter. The clip was also shown on the Sony Video screen in Times Square Wednesday night. The single comes from Jackson's second posthumous release “Xscape.” It was preceded by the hit single “Love Never Felt So Good” featuring Justin Timberlake.
“Xscape” features unreleased demos from the King of Pop that were given a contemporary spin by producers L.A. Reid, Timbaland, Stargate, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, and Rodney Jerkins. The album has been met with favorable reviews and is a marked improvement compared to 2010's “Michael.” Recently, the singer's Neverland ranch went up for sale with an asking price of $60 million. The 2,700-acre property is located in California's Santa Barbara County and features a petting zoo, a Ferris wheel, and an arcade. It is still on the market. The property is currently managed by Tom Barrack's Colony Capital firm, who took over Neverland's estimate debt of $23 million back in 2007. Since then the company has spent roughly $5 million a year for the upkeep.
