Rock singer Lenny Kravitz has broken his silence on the leaked Michael Jackson "Another Day" verse and said the snippet is, in fact, a portion of his duet with the late performer.
Speaking through a video recording, Kravitz denied leaking the track.
"I just want to reach out to you so I can set the record straight regarding the Michael Jackson track 'Another Day,'" he said in a video. "A part of the song leaked, not by me, because mine has been locked up in a vault since we recorded it...This song was recorded by Michael and myself. I produced it for him, I wrote the song, and I played all the instruments on the track. It was one of the most amazing musical experiences that I've had." (Rap-Up)
In a past interview, Kravitz reportedly suggested he has an unreleased track from Jackson.
"I got to work with Michael on a track that has not been released and it was the most amazing experience I've had in the studio. He was funny. Very funny and we laughed the whole time. I also saw what a beautiful father he was. He was a beautiful human being. I am deeply saddened this evening." (Zap 2 It)
The song began to circulate online late Sunday (January 3) evening
Much like 2Pac, Michael Jackson has no problem releasing new music, even though he's ... ya know, dead. An unreleased song called "Another Day" is making the rounds, an alleged duet with Lenny Kravitz. The verse Michael sings seems to be the same as from an older Kravitz song called "Storm." Kravitz gave an interview with Spinner shortly after Michael's death where he mentioned working with him on a song that hadn't been released. Kravitz called it "the most amazing experience I've had in the studio." (TMZ)
On the leaked verse, Jackson declares his love for an estranged person.
"My life, has taken me beyond the planets and the stars," Jackson sings, "and you're the only one that could make me this far/I'll be forever searching for your love...You're the one that makes me go, I can't make it another day/Your'e the fire that keeps me warm, I can't make it another day/How do I get through this storm/I can't make it another day without your love..." ("Another Day")
