Music Bosses Launch Investigation Over Jackson/kravitz Song Leak

Music executives at Sony have launched an investigation in a bid to find the person responsible for releasing a MICHAEL JACKSON/LENNY KRAVITZ duet without authorisation.
Kravitz has spoken out about the track, which leaked onto the internet over the weekend (02Jan10), explaining he worked with the King of Pop on the track, Another Day.
In a video posted on his website, Kravitz reveals he hopes a final version of the song will be released once the investigation is complete.
The rocker says, "I just want to reach out to you so I can set the record straight regarding the Michael Jackson track Another Day. As you know and have heard, part of the song leaked - not by me because mine has been locked in a vault since we recorded it. The version that's out is a minute and 30 seconds roughly of the track, not mixed, but is it the track.
"The DJ who's speaking over the track - I don't know who that person is. I don't know how they obtained it. I don't know what their purpose is but that person has nothing to do with the track. The 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."
Kravitz reveals he's immensely proud of the finished tune: "It was one of the most amazing music experiences that I've ever had. It was done by two people who respect each other and love music.
"I'd like to see this thing get straightened out as soon as possible because I'd like for you the fans and people who love Michael to hear the track in it's entirety, the way it was meant to be (and) the way Michael and I had intended it to be. That's all being worked out."
Jackson's former record bosses at Sony, with the support of the late star's estate lawyers, are working to have the song pulled off the internet.
