Legendary film director Spike Lee chronicles the King of Pop’s landmark Bad album in his latest documentary. Lee’s project takes an in-depth look into Michael Jackson’s acclaimed studio album from 1987. The documentary’s release is being coupled with 25th anniversary of the album that won Jackson two Grammy awards. The album featured hit songs like “Smooth Criminal”, “Dirty Diana”, “Man in the Mirror” and of course “Bad.”


The documentary will also look into Jackson’s record-breaking world tour and features interviews with people like Sheryl Crow who he worked and sang alongside Jackson during the late 80s.

Lee says, “I’m more than just a huge fan of Michael Jackson, and having the chance to actually know him and work with him, I deeply care about his legacy. With this Bad project I was able to uncover just what made this such a huge, important coming of age in his career and unearth compelling stories surrounding the making of the album, the long awaited follow-up to Thriller — the best selling album of all time — the short films and the tour that may have never seen the light of day.”
