John Kennedy / October 11, 2009

The long awaited single “This Is It” from the upcoming documentary Michael Jackson’s This Is It will be released Monday.

Set to debut Monday at 12AM EST on MichaelJackson.com, the track leads a two-disc package that will accompany the October 27 release of the This Is It documentary.

According to Rolling Stone, “This Is It” was recorded during the sessions for Jackson’s 1991 album Dangerous, but has two versions.

Early ticket sales for the This Is It documentary have resulted in hundreds of sold-out shows in North America alone.

Cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston and New York are reportedly leading the pack. But, it’s not just North America. Japanese fans are buying tickets for the film at a speedy pace. In fact, sources are reporting that more than $1 million worth of tickets have been purchased since the pre-sale began.

In London, more than 30,000 tickets were purchased on the first day.
