NEW YORK - The first song from the upcoming Michael Jackson music documentary "This Is It" made it's debut online early Monday morning on MichaelJackson.com.

According to The New York Times, Radio programmers said were told by Sony that they would be receiving Jackson's latest song late Sunday night. TMZ posted a leaked, 43-second clip of the song hours before its official release.


The Star-Ledger
describes "This Is It" as "a sweet, mid-tempo love song, with orchestral strings, a crisp beat, and creamy backing vocals by Jackson's brothers."

Jackson's fans could be hearing new music from the self-proclaimed King of Pop for some time to come. The chairman of the Columbia/Epic Label Group told The New York Times "We probably have at least 100 songs in varying degrees of being finished...And we think there probably is a lot more. We haven't gone into the archive to search it properly yet. It's just too complicated to do that."

"This Is It" plays during the closing sequence of "Michael Jackson's This Is It" and will be included on a companion two-disc CD set.

The documentary opens Oct. 28 for a two-week limited run and was built around rehearsal footage for Jackson's planned London concerts. He died in Los Angeles on June 25.

The CD features original album masters of some of Jackson's biggest hits, including "Thriller" and "Billie Jean." They're in the same sequence as they appear in the film.

Michael Jackson died June 25, 2009.

Lyrics to Michael Jackson's "This Is It"
This is it, here I stand
I'm the light of the world, I feel grand
Got this love I can feel
And I know yes for sure it is real

And it feels as though I've seen your face a thousand times
And you said you really know me too yourself [?]
And I know that you have got addicted with your eyes [?]
But you say you gonna live it for yourself. [?]

I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thught that I would be your lover
C'mon baby, just understand

This is it, I can say,
I'm the light of the world, run away [?]
We can feel, this is real
Every time I'm in love that I feel

Michael Jackson "This Is It" Lyrics

And I feel as though I've known you since 1,000 years
And you tell me that you've seen my face before.
And you said to me you don't wnat me hanging round
Many times, wanna do it here before [?]

I never heard a single word about you
Falling in love wasn't my plan
I never thught that I would be your lover
C'mon baby, just understand

This is it, I can feel
I'm the light of the world, this is real
Feel my song, we can say
And I tell you I feel that way
