‘Thriller 40’ Bonus Track: ‘Sunset Driver’
Today the sixth bonus track (out of ten) was announced as “Sunset Driver.” Our understanding is this is the same version that appeared on the 2004 “Ultimate Collection” album.
The song was written by Michael and recorded originally for “Off the Wall” and then again for “Thriller” in 1982. Michael even considered it for “Bad” a few years later. The 1982 version was eventually the on version released as a demo in 2004.
This was another song Michael originally wrote for the “Thriller” album. Although Michael also considered it for “Bad”, he never finished it but released it as a bonus track on The Ultimate Collection in 2004. Pre-order #Thriller40 now: https://t.co/X9oMHFhqCX pic.twitter.com/0Q3LCoQVI2
