Lenny Kravitz denies leaking Jackson collaboration
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Lenny Kravitz has taken to Twitter to "set the record straight" about a leaked version of Michael Jackson's "Another Day," a song the rocker recorded with the late King of Pop.
Kravitz posted a video of himself sitting among trees and telling fans that the version of "Another Day" which surfaced online Sunday night was not leaked by him.
"Mine has been locked up in a vault since we recorded it," he says. "The version that's out is a minute and 30 seconds, roughly, of the track -- not mixed, but it is the track. The DJ who's speaking over the track, I don't know who that person is, I don't know how he obtained it...but that person has nothing to do with the track."
Of his collaboration with Jackson, Kravitz says, "I produced it for him; I wrote the song and played all the instruments for him on the track. It was one of the most amazing musical experiences I've ever had. It was done by two people who respect each other and who love music."
Meanwhile, new leaks of "Another Day" continue to pop up online as Jackson's label tries to shut them down. For his part, Kravitz says he wants the final and complete version of the song to see the light of day.
"I'd like to see this thing get straightened out as soon as possible," Kravitz says, "because I'd like for you -- the fans, the people who love Michael -- to hear the track in its entirety the way it was meant to be...so that's all being worked out, as I sit here in the bush. I'll get back to you as soon as I have more information."
