Michael Jackson's music videos, which helped make the form an important launching pad for new pop tracks, will be collected and released in an omnibus set this fall.

The pop singer's estate and Epic/Legacy Records announced on Wednesday plans to release Michael Jackson's Vision, a three-disc DVD collection comprising full-length versions of his solo music videos in November.

Accompanied by a book of photos drawn from the singer's own collection, the more than 40 videos in the set will include familiar titles such as Jackson's Thriller and Billie Jean, the Martin Scorsese-directed Bad and the star-studded Black or White.

It will also feature more obscure offerings, like Ghosts (made with special effects master Stan Winston), Say Say Say with Paul McCartney, the Spike Lee-directed version of They Don't Care About Us and the previously unreleased One More Chance from 2003.

The forthcoming box set, set to hit stores Nov. 22, is among a flood of Jackson-related projects and releases that have emerged since his sudden death in June 2009.

Others include the 2009 documentary film This Is It, created from rehearsal footage of the concert series planned before his death, and a forthcoming Cirque du Soleil touring show, Ubisoft dance-inspired video game and a new album of previously unreleased music.
