Michael Jackson's Unreleased Song

7/16/2009 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The song -- "A Place with No Name" -- sounds similar to the song "A Horse with No Name" released by the group America back in 1971. We're told several years ago America's manager gave his group's permission for Michael Jackson to record the song, "A Place with No Name" -- despite the similarity.

America's current manager, Jim Morey, who was also Michael's manager in the late 80's and early 90's, tells us, "The band was honored that Michael chose to do their song and they hope it becomes available for all Michael's fans to hear."

It's unclear when Michael recorded the song.

That song was unoriginal crap, we wouldn't even be checking it out if it wasn't MJ and he wasn't dead. What, no unreleased Carl Malden or Ed McMahon tapes?

Michael didn't steal anything. According to the article, he received permission to record the song. Also, accordig to sony he has several 100 songs in a vault that were never released to the public that will probably be released for many years to come. There was an story on cnn.com about it this morning. People close to Michael said he was happiest in the recording studio and he spent a lot of time there writing and recording when he couldn't sleep. Now for those of you who want to mak wise cracks about him not being able to sleep and drugs go right ahead. He was still very talented regardless of what you think.
