"Forever, Michael" is an album by American singer Michael Jackson, released by the Motown label in 1975.

Album information

The album was Jackson's fourth as a solo artist and would end up being his final album released with Motown before he and his brothers (The Jackson 5) left for CBS Records a year later. This album displayed a change in musical style for the sixteen-year-old, who adopted a smoother soul sound that would be a catalyst for later solo records on Epic.

Most of the tracks were recorded in 1974, and the album was originally set to be released that year. However, because of demand from the Jackson 5's huge hit "Dancing Machine", production on Jackson's album was delayed until the hype from that song died down.

The album helped return Jackson to the top 40 with the Holland brothers' (Eddie and Brian) "Just a Little Bit of You". In 1981, Jackson's "One Day in Your Life" was released as part of the compilation album "One Day in Your Life" to benefit from Jackson's Epic success. The title track went to number one in the UK, becoming the 6th best-selling single of 1981 in the UK.
