Michael Jackson’s long-awaited new song has finally been released. ‘Breaking News’ will be featured on his new album, ‘Michael’, which will touch down on December 14th. Give it a listen below:
I must admit that, now that the song has surfaced in full, I agree with Jackson’s family who say that it may not be him singing. Yes he has performed several song in his lower register before (see ‘Dangerous’) and we have not heard new material for him in quite some time but this really does sound like someone doing their best impersonation of the King of Pop. The only parts of the song that sound like Jackson are the high notes but those could have been implanted from any of his older records via studio mechanics.Array
Still, I did enjoy the string section in the production (although the entire song sounds incredibly dated). If only Jackson was alive to create a video for this track it could have been something special.
