Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb releases never-before-heard MJ duet
Washington: Bee Gees frontman Barry Gibb has unveiled footage of him recording an unreleased track with Michael Jackson in 2002, insisting they “loved collaborating” together.
"Michael Jackson and I were the dearest of friends, that’s simply what it was," writes Gibb in a statement on his website.
"We gravitated towards the same kind of music and we loved collaborating and he was the easiest person to write with. The more we got to know each other, the more those ideas entwined and it all came to this song, ``All in Your Name.``"
Gibb revealed that there’s more than two hours of footage in all, filmed by his son Ashley Gibb, reports Pop Eater.
The sessions took place at the Bee Gees` once-renowned but now defunct Middle Ear Studios in Miami, Fla.
"‘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," writes Gibb.
"I hope and pray that we all get to hear it in its entirety. This experience, I will treasure forever,” he added.
