MUCH ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM FROM THE KING OF POP MICHAEL TO BE RELEASED DECEMBER 14

New York, NY – The much anticipated album of newly completed recordings from Michael Jackson entitled MICHAEL will be released on December 14 by Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson. Tomorrow, an exclusive teaser for the project will appear on www.michaeljackson.com; on Monday, November 8th the world premiere of “Breaking News,” a full track from the album, will stream on the site for one week only.

The creative process never stopped for the King of Pop who was always planning for his next album; unbeknownst to many fans around the world Michael Jackson was writing and recording songs continuously everywhere from a friend’s home in New Jersey to studios in Las Vegas and Los Angeles with a small group of handpicked collaborators. Now, through the unique stories that will be told about the songs that comprise MICHAEL, fans will get mind-blowing insight into how this artist worked and a chance to hear the songs he most recently created along with tracks that Michael had a desire to bring to fruition.

“Breaking News,” a never heard before song by Michael that appears on the new album was recorded in New Jersey in 2007 and recently brought to completion. Fans can begin pre-ordering the album on www.michaeljackson.com in the next 24 hours.

The attached image of the album cover of MICHAEL was created by painter Kadir Nelson in 2009. In the oil painting, Kadir – who is known for story telling through his art – takes us on a journey through some key moments and important people in Michael Jackson’s life.

Stay tuned for the worldwide launch of the official first single from MICHAEL later this month.

So what say you guys? Excited, or feeling nay? Will this top Made In Heaven in any way, shape or form?

Opinionate away!

Tacky cover images. Really poor taste, as usual, from the Jackson crew.

HAHA!!!! The corpses from Thriller are on the cover??  I hate it when MJ's management pre-empt me on things like this, I was going to have a field day turning him into a rotting corpse.  Now I don't even have to try.

I can see why that song wasn't released, worse than most of the tracks on Invincible. Sounds like they have lowered the vocals digitally too.
It's going to be number 1 though, people do weird things when artists are dead.

another rather ironic note about the cover .....are those cherubs, or just young naked boys with wings, holding the crown?

is it just me or is Michaels hand really big in the picture on the right, under the cameras, but above the "leave me alone" roller coaster?

Also if you listen to the Michael Jackson vocals buried deep in the mix during the chorus the
title seems to be "breaking the noose"

The funny thing is that the people in the link claim it's not MJ at all :-)

Why do you consider it to be poor taste?

The cover is a bit odd at first glance, since it'd be something you're more likely to see for a compilation best-of album rather than a new album, but I find it actually grows on you :-)

Like a fungus.

There's phrase sometimes used to describe something garish and tasteless -- it looks like a whore's handbag.
