Showtime premiered a new clip of Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson documentary.

To coincide with the reissue of Michael Jackson’s fifth studio album Off the Wall out February 26, Spike Lee filmed a documentary titled Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall. He’ll premiere it at the Sundance Film Festival later this month before it airs on Showtime Feb 5. at 9 p.m. ET.

Journey features archival footage, primary source material from Jackson himself, and interviews with stars including Pharrell Williams, Kobe Bryant, Mark Ronson, John Legend, Lee Daniels, and Questlove, reports EW.

To hype the special, Lee is teasing the doc with part of The Weeknd’s interview feature, where he explains Jackson’s crucial impact on him as an artist.

Off The Wall was definitely one that made me feel like I can sing,” Tesfaye says. “I found my falsetto because of Off The Wall… “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.”
