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.

sounds like he's saying " Take me to a place without no pain." If that is what he's saying, I guess that is where the drugs come in, When he took them, he felt nothing.

Please TMZ we want more world exclusive more unreleased songs.

& Also please put your fingers on the whole jackson case puzzle
the suspects:
1- Dr. Murray
2- Sony & Tommy Mottola
3- AEG

You're just focusing on Dr.Murray even Latoya mentioned that his death was a bigger scheme. Let the public see the big picture.

& Thanks a lot for keeping us updated and the best source to get info from all about Michael Jackson.
Cheers.

Sounds good except for the double negative which is a real problem. This may be the reason it was never released.

gimmie a break.. I love MJ - but that just sucks the big one!

Dear god don't let this turn out like when Hendrix died.. every FREAKING song tried, attempted or pissed on turning up on vinyl

If MJ, the perfectionist that he was, wanted this realised – it would not have been waiting for someone to cash in on it after his untimely death – dammit find something worth his talent.

Based on the production values, this was likely recorded in the early 2000's. Possibly during the "Invincible" sessions.
