A video for "Hold My Hand, the first official single from the forthcoming Michael Jackson album, was filmed on Monday and will have a "heavenly" theme, according to TMZ.

The clip was filmed in an airplane hangar in Tustin, California, and involved a number of extras, several of whom were "die-hard MJ fans." The extras were asked walk into the darkened hangar toward a single bright light, which one source said was to symbolize a journey into heaven.

The report did not say whether Akon, Jackson's collaborator on the song, will be involved in the video.

Last week a previously unreleased video for Jackson's 2003 song "One More Chance" was posted on his official website. Michael, a collection of unreleased studio recordings, is slated for release on December 14.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
