New Music: Michael Jackson - 'Do You Know Where Your Children Are'
And here's the last one. This week Sony's Unlimited Music has been premiering a new Michael Jackson song off his second posthumous album 'Xscape' (May 13) each day. Today, May 9th, the last track they were approved for revealing has premiered. It's 'Do You Know Where Your Children Are'. Stream below!
'Do You Know Where Your Children Are' was originally recorded in 1991 and failed to make it on to MJ's 'Dangerous' album. The song leaked in demo form in 2011 and was by then known as '12 O'Clock'. Slash originally performed guitar on the recording, but the new 'contemporized' version done by Timbaland has given 'Do You Know Where Your Children Are' a new sound. Prefer the original or this?
As for the song lyrics, in 'Do You Know Where Your Children Are' Michael Jackson sings about his worry for a girl who's left her house. She was abused by her stepfather! What!?
