A previously unknown song by singing superstar Michael Jackson has been discovered – about his love for GLOUCESTERSHIRE.

The unreleased demo song by the King of Pop is believed to have been inspired by a visit he made to the West Country as a child with The Jackson Five.

He reportedly said the time he spent in the county was among his happiest memories.

The song ‘Days in Gloucestershire’ was recorded in 2003-4 and reworked in 2008 but never released.

The song was leaked onto the internet around two months ago and has already racked up almost 13,000 views.

Among the comments Gloucestershire resident Maxien Fisher says: “It does sound like a demo though as some of the music isn’t quite up to Jackson standard.

“I imagine he would have perfected this beautifully :)  .. I’m glad to be living in Gloucestershire now… Thanks Michael x?”

It is thought Jackson planned to complete the track on a recording trip to London in 2009 but he died just months before the visit.

This are the lyrics to ‘Days in Gloucestershire':

“Like we really used to before we met the fall.

I can’t get it back, my youth is gone

We really had it all, oh

Hold my like you really used to

Summers in Gloucestershire

The air has changed

The city won’t light in an about you

I wish that we’ll see Gloucestershire

I wish that we’ll see Gloucestershire

I wish that we’ll see Gloucestershire, again.”
