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.

Five Michael Jackson fans have won damages after a French court agreed they had suffered "emotional damage" after the superstar's death.

The fans were awarded the symbolic sum of one Euro each Tuesday, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).

The group were part of a larger case of 34 fans who had sued Conrad Murray, Jackson's doctor.

Murray was jailed over the singer's death in 2011.

The plaintiffs, two from France, two from Switzerland and one from Belgium now hope their status of victims will help them with their attempts to gain access to Jackson's grave, which is private.
