HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I; 20 years of the most personal Michael Jackson Album.

June 17, 2015 • By

20 ANNIVERSARY

PAST:

Let’s go back to June 1995! When you’re a fan of a global artist such as Michael Jackson, every album release is a major event, the hype is huge! Remember  the feeling when the news broke that Michael Jackson is about to release his 9th Album and for the first time since the run up to Bad, the stakes are high . The album; titled “HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I”  is made up of a two discs set. ‘HIStory Begins’ which includes his greatest hits from 1979 to 1992 and ‘HIStory Continues’ with a brand new 15 tracks album. What more could a fan ask for from their artist at that time?!
The anticipation is huge not only because the promotion for this album has been a monstrous marketing plan which to date hasn’t been beaten but also because fans and public are hoping to hear what the King of Pop has to say about the 1993 accusation. Well, the wait is over and Michael Jackson releases the most personal album ever with songs portraying mistreatment in the media, injustice, greed and environment awareness. We see Michael at his most vulnerable as he opens his heart with songs like “Childhood” where he explains who he is and how he feels but also a there’s the cut throat, insult laiden “D.S.”.
“Stranger in Moscow” is said to be written by Michael in Moscow in 1993 following the global falls out from the accusation. This is maybe the most heart-breaking song on the album.
With 8 singles, a World Tour and a huge amount of Merchandise, HIStory took Europe and Asia by storm and it is one of the fans’ favourite!
Not to mention that HIStory got a spin-off with the album ‘Blood On the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix’ which included remixes of the album and 5 brand new tracks releases in 1997.
A short film called “GHOSTS” was also released and premiered at the Cannes Festival. read more
