This year will make seven years since the world lost one of its greatest, if not greatest, musicians of all time. And there are those who want to make sure Michael Jackson’s legacy lives on. 

On Feb. 26, Legacy Recordings will reissue Jackson’s Off the Wall, which was his fifth studio album. Off the Wall included such hits as “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” “Rock With You” and “Workin’ Day and Night.” The rerelease will include a new documentary directed by Spike Lee.  

Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown to Off the Wall, which will debut at the Sundance Film Festival this month, includes archived footage, along with interviews by others in the music industry, such as Pharrell Williams, John Legend and Questlove.

If you’re not able to view the film at Sundance or purchase the CD-and-DVD (or CD-and-Blu-ray) package, you can view the documentary on Showtime Feb 5. at 9 p.m. ET.
