Legacy Recordings announced Thursday that it will reissue Michael Jackson’s seminal fifth studio album Off the Wall in February — along with a documentary that should get even the King of Pop’s most ardent fans excited. The fresh edition of the 1979 album drops Feb. 26 and will come packaged with Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall, a new film directed by Spike Lee. The doc will make its debut later this month at the Sundance Film Festival, and it will then air on Showtime Feb 5. at 9 p.m. ET.

Michael Jackson’s Journey will also include 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.

Recorded when Jackson was only 20 years old, Off the Wall features some of the iconic singer’s most indelible hits, like No. 1 singles “Rock With You” and “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.” EW named the album the 44th greatest of all-time in 2013.
