'Another Day': Sony yanks leaked Michael Jackson song; Lenny Kravitz speaks about the recording

Michael Can you put a genie back in the bottle?

The Jackson family and Sony Music Entertainment have pulled "Another Day," the Michael Jackson-Lenny Kravitz duet that leaked over the weekend. (Notice that the video is no longer, ahem, available.)

Kravitz confirmed in a video on his Facebook page that the 90 seconds or so that circulated online was in fact his work with Jackson. However, he said, though he wrote the song and played all the instruments, he had nothing to do with the leak. What got out is not mixed, he said, and features the voice of someone who had nothing to do with the recording.

"Mine has been locked up in a vault since we recorded it," he said. The session with Jackson was, he said, "one of the most amazing musical experiences I've ever had."

The Ministry recommends you watch Kravitz's video. It's interesting -- and, as a bonus, very relaxing.
