Michael Jackson 'Breaking News' Song Debuts
Four minutes of the dancefloor-ready track available on the singer's website.
"Breaking News," the dancefloor-ready first taste of the upcoming Michael Jackson album "Michael," was posted in full today on the singer's website. The four-minute track, in which Jackson defends himself against his detractors and the media, will be included on the first posthumous album of original material from the King of Pop, set for a Dec. 14 release on Epic Records.
The song begins after 35 seconds of sound bytes from various news reporters who bemoan, "The paparazzi would not leave him alone" and "Here we go again, another lawsuit for Michael Jackson." Over a percolating beat and a racing string section, Jackson sings on the chorus, "Now is it strange that I fall in love/Who is this boogie man you're thinkin' of?"
"Breaking News" will stream for one week on michaeljackson.com, where "Michael" is now available for pre-order. The news of the album release followed last week's announcement of Cirque du Soleil's forthcoming show Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour, set to begin in October 2011.
