The This Is It film event will be supplemented by a new single from the late Michael Jackson, also entitled "This Is It," scheduled to be released on October 12.

A two-disc album by the same name will come out October 27.

Regarding the new single, "This song only defines, once again, what the world already knows - that Michael is one of God's greatest gifts," said John McClain, co-producer of the album and co-executor of the superstar's estate.

The first disc will feature the original masters of Michael's greatest hits arranged in the same order as they appear in the film, ending with the new "This Is It."

The new song features the Jackson brothers on backing vocals.

Disc two offers unreleased versions of his classic tracks, including a spoken word poem from Michael entitled "Planet Earth." It also includes a 36-page commemorative booklet with exclusive pictures of his last rehearsal.

It's hard to blame the estate for trying to cash in on the overwhelming interest in and popularity of Michael Jackson's music in the wake of his tragic death, but at this rate, This Is It should be renamed "This Is Overkill."

Or maybe his fans want every second of it. You tell us.

Will you go see the MJ documentary, This Is It?
