‘Thriller 40’ Bonus Track: ‘Carousel’
“Carousel,” written by Michael Sembello and Don Freeman, is the latest bonus track to be announced for the upcoming “Thriller 40” album.
The strong contender for the “Thriller” album but lost out to “Human Nature.” In 2001 an edited version was released on the “Thriller Special Edition” album. In 2008 the full version at 3 minutes and 40 seconds was released on the album “King of Pop – The Italian Fans’ Selection.”
It’s unclear if the version that will be released on “Thriller 40” will be in full, but we are assuming that to be the case.
This song, co-written by Michael Sembello, was originally one of the 9 tracks intended to be included on the Thriller album until the song “Human Nature” was discovered and wound up on the album instead.
