On January 2, the track "Another Day," reportedly a clip from an unreleased collaboration between Michael Jackson and Lenny Kravitz, began circulating online. The authenticity has since been confirmed: In a January 4 video, Kravitz said that the clip was indeed based on his song (1994's"Storm"), that it was recorded by Jackson, and that Kravitz both produced and provided instrumentals for the track.

Kravitz's collaboration with Jackson was announced shortly after Jackson's death in June 2009, when Kravitz wrote in a letter to Spinner.com, "I got to work with Michael on a track that has not been released and it was the most amazing experience I've had in the studio." In his video, Kravitz states that he did not leak the track, that the DJs heard in the clip are not part of the song, and that he hopes "fans will one day hear the finished track in its entirety, the way me and Michael intended it to be."

"Another Day," which Rolling Stone says appears to have leaked via the fan site MJ Star, is the second track to be released from a vault of material by Jackson. In July 2009, a clip of "A Place With No Name," Jackson's version of America's "A Horse With No Name," made it online. According to Rolling Stone, Jackson's manager has confirmed that the artist left behind hard drives full of unreleased songs, including collaborations with Ne-Yo, Akon, and Will.i.am, plus material from the 1980s.

Celebrity news website TMZ.com reports that Sony Music wants all clips of "Another Day" pulled from the internet.
