Michael Jackson is one of the greatest singers/songwriters/entertainers ever. I have been a fan for years. I still bump his music every day, I’ve used it in montages, and made a tribute for him after he died. I also knew a lot about the unheard library he left behind and his over-recorded songs for albums. In ’08 I bought his Thriller 25th Anniversary album, which had his most recent songs, but he was working on a new album before his death, and I am so hyped a release date has finally been announced; December 14th.
Over a year after he died, Epic Records and the Estate of Michael Jackson are releasing his highly-anticipated new album “Michael” composed of newly-completed songs. The cover artwork is an oil painting by Kadir Nelson, and it displays some of the key moments and important people in MJ’s life.
In anticipation of the project’s December 14 release, a teaser will appear tomorrow on MichaelJackson.com, while fans can hear the first single “Breaking News” on Monday, November 8. The never-before-heard song, recorded in New Jersey in 2007, will stream on the site for one week. So hyped!
