*Michael Jackson’s brother Tito will unveil some of his new music during a performance scheduled for New Year’s Eve in Atlanta.
The 57-year-old musician and original member of the Jackson 5 also plans to perform some Jackson 5 classics in his set at the city’s 22nd Annual Peach Drop celebration on Friday, reports the AP.
Jackson’s debut solo album, “So Far, So Good,” will be released in early 2011. He says he had planned to release the album earlier, but after his brother Michael’s death in 2009, “it took a minute to get my head back in the right direction.”
The guitarist says that as a Jackson, his solo album is long overdue: “The only people who haven’t done it are my mom and dad and the family dog.”
He described his sound as “pop-ish and R&B-ish.”
“It’s a little bit of everything,” he says.
Jackson is excited about his album, but has “mixed emotions” about his brother’s posthumous release earlier this month, “Michael,” which sold more than 3 million copies in its first week out.
“The songs I feel Michael participated in, I love them very much,” he says. “I’ll leave it at that.”
