The Sony Music Entertainment announced Wednesday that the song, which features backing vocals by Michael's brothers, the Jacksons, will be released in October, adding that a two-disc album will be released internationally on Oct. 26 and in North America the next day.

"This song only defines, once again, what the world already knows — that Michael is one of God's greatest gifts," said John McClain, co-producer of the album.

The film, which chronicles Jackson's final days rehearsing for his comeback concerts, will hit theaters on Oct. 28 for a two-week run.

The pop star died June 25 at his rented Holmby Hills mansion in Los Angeles at the age of 50, just days before he was to perform a series of concerts in London.
