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.

@59: Janet sampled America's "Ventura Highway" for her song "Someone To Call My Lover".

I wish this had been released instead of some of the tracks that ended up on HIStory and Invincible. I can't wait for an official release! :)

MJ is so amazing. He has over 200 unreleased songs, so he is going to be with in spirit and song for many more years to come. I hope they make this song into a ringtone so I can get it at www.MichealJacksonringtones.com

Seemed very derivative. Of course, that's how it's done these days.
