New Michael Jackson song available exclusively on Ping

A new song from the late Michael Jackson has hit the net, but the only place you can currently grab the track is on Apple's Ping social network. The track will be exclusive to Ping for the next week, followed by the subsequent release of his full record on December 14th.

It's interesting to see the track being made available on Ping before MJ fans can grab it anywhere else. Hopefully this will give Ping a boost, as the social service hasn't picked up too much traction since its debut in early September.

Any Michael Jackson fans planning on downloading this new tune? Let us know in the comments!
