This song (hit the link) sounds just like what MJ would release if he were still making music.
It also has a hyper modern edge, which contrasts much less with the throwback MJ vibe than I could have ever expected.
It also has a dose of that wall of sound / earworm Fall Out Boy composition that made him famous. Or maybe not famous, because nobody seems to know who I'm talking about when I mention Patrick Stump.
After the first listen, I didn't know if I liked it or not, but I knew I wanted to listen to it again. After the second listen, I still didn't know if I liked it, and I wanted to listen to it again.
After I had listened to it three times, I realized that I had just listened to it three times.
Stump's EP Truant Wave is out on Tuesday February 22, and his full length debut Soul Punk is coming this summer.
