New Michael Jackson Clip: ‘Hold My Hand’ (VIDEO)

More than a year after his tragic passing at the age of 50, Michael Jackson is still gracing a grateful world with his music.

The video for “Hold My Hand,” the first official song from Jackson’s soon-to-be-released posthumous album, Michael (out on December 14), has hit the Internet. Though the track, which features “Locked Up” singer Akon, begins on an eerily bittersweet note, with Jackson singing, “This life don’t last forever,” the video itself is an uplifting tribute to all that Jackson held dear, according to its director, Mark Pellington:

“The video is a tribute to all that Michael stands for — life, in all its permutations… love, and its power…. A video of memory, healing and joy.”
