Epic Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, released the second wave of expanded digital editions of essential titles in The Jacksons catalog: Triumph (1980), Victory (1984), and 2300 Jackson Street (1989).  In addition to The Jacksons X MLK remix released on March 19, the Triumph re-release includes two additional new remixes of The Jacksons' "Can You Feel It":  The Kirk Franklin Remix and The Island Remix featuring David Sanborn.

You can watch the music video for Can You Feel It (Kirk Franklin Remix) below.

"These albums were released at a defining time in our career, and we thank Sony Music for recognizing the legacy of this music and our historic relationship with the label," said Jackie, Marlon and Tito Jackson.

The third single from the Triumph album, "Can You Feel It" hit #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Charts (and #77 on the Hot 100) following its release in March 1981. Written and arranged by Michael Jackson and Jackie Jackson, the track was produced by The Jacksons and features lead vocals by Michael and Randy Jackson accompanied by gospel choirs. 

On Kirk Franklin's remix of the classic Jacksons recording, the Grammy Award-winning contemporary gospel artist reminds everyone that "the winds of change are blowing your way" while channeling a Sunday church service with gospel musicians and choir, the soulful vocals of the legendary Tamela Mann and Franklin's own call-and-response with Michael Jackson.  This remix also serves as the electrifying soundtrack to a new music video set in a church and celebrating the inspirational soul-gospel vibe and message of the song.
