New Studio Footage of Michael Jackson and Barry Gibb's 2002 Collaboration!

Rumor has it that one sunny, summer day in 2002, Michael Jackson showed up at Bee Gees frontman Barry Gibb's doorstep, with a partially written song in hand. Entitled 'All in Your Name,' Jackson had penned the song in protest of the United States government's plans to invade Iraq (which took place in March 2003), and convinced his old friend to contribute to it.

Together, the pair recorded a simple demo in Gibb's Middle Ear Studios, though the song was never officially released.

And now, years later, Gibb's official YouTube account just posted a sneak peak of the lenegdary collaboration (above). The entire recording session was shot on a high 8 camera by Gibb's son, Ashley. There is apparently "over 2 hours of footage," perhaps to be released at a later date.

Wrote Gibb on his website:

"Michael Jackson and I were the dearest of friends, that's simply what it was. We gravitated towards the same kind of music and we loved collaborating and he was the easiest person to write with. The more we got to know each other the more those ideas entwined and it all came to this song 'All in Your Name.'

"'All in Your Name' is in fact the message that Michael wanted to send out to all of his fans all over the World that he did it all for them and for the pure love of music. I hope and pray that we all get to hear it in its entirety. This experience I will treasure forever."
