This song doesn’t even have a name. We were surprised to find it in our inbox so quickly after The King’s death yesterday, so we asked Tanlines‘ Jesse Cohen what the deal was. He said, “We were working in the studio on something else when the news broke and I happened to be playing with a synth that sounded like the one from ‘Beat It.’ So Eric figured out the guitar line and we made this tribute quickly.” You can see them pulling this together briefly in the above video. As we said before, the breadth of MJ’s influence and spark are immeasurable and maybe the good of his passing will be its reignition. Let this be the beginning.
