Blogs are buzzing about a “new” Thriller 25th anniversary album. The cover being shown on the blogs writing about this rumor is that of the deluxe casebook edition that was released in February 2008.
Sorry, folks. This is not a new album. It is simply a deluxe edition of the Thriller 25 album that came out last year — several months after the 25th anniversary of Thriller. The cover was added to the AAX gallery in December 2008.
It is a great version of the album with extra tracks and Amazon.com has it in stock. It is on sale for $20.99. Just click the “buy now” button and you’ll be taken to Amazon.com.
It is likely that the unusual cover featuring Jackson surrounded by zombies from the Thriller video is what started the rumor. Not very many people are familiar with this particular cover. Sorry to disappoint those who thought this was a new release.
