Nine years after the signer’s death, a music video for the song “Behind the Mask” has been posted on YouTube.
In 1982, Michael Jackson released his sixth album Thriller, which cemented his role in music history and remained loved through the generations. Behind the Mask, a song originally set to appear on the album along with other hits like Beat It, Billie Jean, Human Nature, Baby Be Mine, and Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin, has just been given a new music video, to everyone’s surprise. The song was never originally published due to copyright reasons – it was actually a cover song from the Japanese group Yellow Magic Orchestra. The music video, put together by the duo Aggressive, features the singer through archival footage.
