It’s been 25 years since Michael Jackson released his 1987 album, BAD and to celebrate Epic/Legacy Recordings, in collaboration with the late singer’s estate, is releasing a three-disc box set complete with the all of the hits and a few other surprises.

On disc one of the 25th Anniversary deluxe edition, Bad25, due out September 18, his biggest songs like “Smooth Criminal,” “Man in the Mirror,” and “The Way You Make Me Feel” get remastered. This disc stays true to the original tracklisting, except for the addition of  “Leave Me Alone,” which was included as a bonus track 25 years ago.

Fans get a chance to hear six unreleased demos on disc two including “Al Capone,” which later became “Smooth Criminal” and “Abortion Papers,” which was Michael’s attempt to thoughtfully address the sensitive topic. The rest of the disc is filled with unreleased tracks like the French version of Michael performing “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” and a remix of “Speed Demon.”

If all this wasn’t enough, the deluxe set includes a CD/DVD of his July 16, 1988 show at Wembley Stadium. The never-before-seen concert was one of seven record-breaking nights played at the London venue and the DVD was sourced from Michael’s own personal VHS copy of the show. The only copy believed to exist from the show that Prince Charles and Princess Diana attended.
