EDITORS’ NOTES

Michael Jackson’s 1982 album changed the face of pop, with the slinky “Billie Jean” and the rock-edged “Beat It” forcing funk-tinged R&B into the mainstream. This 25th-anniversary edition honours the album’s place among music’s all-time greats by bringing in 21st-century star power; will.i.am adds a hip-hop edge to “The Girl Is Mine,” while Kanye West’s remix of “Billie Jean” emphasizes its sultry groove. Demos, alternate mixes, and interviews with collaborators like producer Quincy Jones and “Thriller” composer Rod Temperton round out this comprehensive celebration.
