Bee Gees frontman Barry Gibb has posted a 30-second clip of an unreleased collaboration with Michael Jackson online.
The footage shows Gibb and Jackson in the studio writing and recording the track ‘All In Your Name’. Watch it by clicking below.
The singer first posted the clip on Barrygibb.com with a message explaining that the track was recorded in 2002. “Michael Jackson and I were the dearest of friends, that’s simply what it was,” he explained. “We gravitated towards the same kind of music and we loved collaborating and he was the easiest person to write with.”
He added: “The more we got to know each other the more those ideas entwined and it all came to this song ‘All In Your Name’. “All in Your Name” is in fact the message that Michael wanted to send out to all of his fans all over the world that he did it all for them and for the pure love of music. I hope and pray that we all get to hear it in its entirety. This experience I will treasure forever.”
Some media sources are speculating that the track was written in response to the US government’s plan to invade Iraq. The footage was shot by Gibb‘s daugher Ashley.
