Among the many releases on MusicTAP‘s calendar today is a new Motown title for The Jackson 5, rather simply titled J is for Jackson 5. What could this possibly entail?
My educated guess comes from elsewhere in the Universal Music Group back catalogue. Last summer, UMe released B is for Bob, a kid-friendly compilation of newly-remixed Bob Marley songs supervised by Ziggy Marley. (Fear not, purists: four of the tracks were presented in their original mixes.)
J is for J5 might go over easier since the group in question already has a mass appeal to younger ones – and those singsong bubblegum pop hits may go over well enough to avoid any terribly drastic remixes. (For collectors, I’m willing to bank on something for you as well – maybe a few instrumental versions of some big J5 hits.)
In any case, J is for Jackson 5 is due March 30.
