New Michael Jackson Album 'Michael' Out In December

This afternoon Sony announced the release of Michael Jackson's posthumous studio album Michael. It's his first since 2001 LP Invincible. Jesus—why do I have a feeling MJ is suddenly going to become more prolific than Tupac was after he died?

Anyway, some info about Michael:

* It's out December 14.
* New song "Breaking News" hits the Internet November 8.
* That tune was recorded in 2007.
* The cover was painted by Kadir Nelson last year.

Says Sony:
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.
Happy Holidayyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-HHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEs!!!!!

    Super-excited for this. I never stopped admiring Michael Jackson. "Dangerous" and "History" was rather uneventful albums but I thought "Invincible" marked a Michael Jackson sound as opposed to the self-indulgence of his 90s records.
