Update: Justin Timberlake just posted the apparent single artwork for the song on Instagram, which lists “Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake” as the artists. Check out his post below, and hear the song here.

Tonight’s inaugural NBC broadcast of the iHeartRadio Music Awards will boast appearances by Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry and Lorde, as well as performances by Pharrell, Drake, Shakira and Ariana Grande. But among all the surprises, bells, whistles and overall hoo ha will be the premiere of a “new” song: Michael Jackson‘s “Love Never Felt So Good,” off the late singer’s forthcoming posthumous release Xscape (out May 27).

iHeartRadio tweeted that the song will debut during tonight’s telecast “with a special guest.” PopJustice notes that “Love Never Felt So Good” will be the first official single from the eight-track Xscape. You can hear an early version of the song from the early ’80s here, and dream about the wondrous possibilities of how the “finished” version will sound until tonight.
