Breaking News: a new Michael Jackson single was premiered on michaeljackson.com today. According to reports, "Breaking News" is the first single from Michael Jackson's first posthumous album, Michael, due to hit shelves (and break Holiday sales records, no doubt) December 14. "Breaking News," like all of Michael's content was recorded between 2001 and 2009 and completed after the legend's death by various, as of yet unidentified collaborators. However, rumors that Jackson was working with Akon, and Lady Gaga producer / mastermind RedOne before his death have been running rampant. Also, Jackson has recently worked with Akon, Kanye West and the Black Eyed Peas' Fergie & will.i.am on the 25th Anniversary Edition of his seminal classic, Thriller. Despite rumors of contemporary collaborators, "Breaking News" sounds affectionately faithful to Michael Jackson's work in the mid-late 90's (HiStory) and early 2000s (Invincible). You can listen to the track below:
