Michael Jackson declared love of Gloucestershire in new leaked unreleased song

An unreleased Michael Jackson demo song by Michael Jackson in which he declared his love for Gloucestershire has been leaked on the internet.

The late pop star is believed to have recorded the song in 2005 and it was never released or completed, although it was apparently reworked in 2008, according to the Gloucestershire Echo.

We really had it all, oh. Hold me like you really used to. Summers in Gloucestershire. The air has changed. The city won’t light in an about you. I wish that we’ll see Gloucestershire. I wish that we’ll see Gloucestershire. I wish that we’ll see Gloucestershire, again.

– Lyrics from the song

Jackson died on 25 June 2009 at the age of 50, following an overdose of the anaesthetic propofol at his Beverly Hills home.

He had been due to perform at a series of comeback concerts in the UK before his death.

Jackson has previously been named as the highest-earning dead celebrity, and he topped the album charts last month with a record featuring a series of unreleased tracks.
