March 12, 2014 • By

When Michael recorded We Are The World with a host of stars back in 1985, the sign on the door were clear, ‘Leave your egos at the door’ and everyone adhered to this notion. But in Michael’s eyes, that didn’t mean that you couldn’t look anything short of fantastic.

Issue 14 IconicFor Iconic Issue 14, we chose to feature an image that captures Michael in a moment of musical bliss and this image was the perfect choice.

Exclusive Interview with Matt Forger

March 11, 2014 • By

Matt Forger began working with Michael Jackson in 1982 for the Thriller album. He has continued to work in and around Michael’s music world ever since. Iconic caught up with the incredible engineer for Issue 14.  Here is just a snippet from the interview…

I was going through Michael Jackson’s album credits and your role seems different in every single one?
It was! I was credited as technical engineer on Thriller and I also recorded some of the sounds for the album. In each subsequent album, I worked in a similar fashion but as time went on, my duties either grew or changed in nature. I grew to a position of supervising some of the work, not only hands on in the studio but also making sure the whole project ran smoothly. read more

STATEMENT FROM THE ESTATE REGARDING THE UPCOMING ALBUM

March 7, 2014 • By
We have received many emails regarding a Sky News story posted online stating that there is a new Michael Jackson album coming in April which will be available only on the Sony Xperia Z2. The story doesn’t contain any statement by the Estate or Epic Records.  This is because The Estate and Sony Music have not announced any information about a new Michael Jackson album. If and when there is information to be shared, we will happily do so. In the meantime, please remember that the old adage “don’t believe everything you hear” applies equally well to what is posted on the Internet.
