A new Michael Jackson album, entitled simply,Michael is being released December 14th. It’s a compilation of previously unreleased older recordings. His official website posted a teaser video today, which doesn’t really let you hear much of anything besides one of his signature squeals. Watch below:
Naturally, as it always is with all things Michael Jackson, there is controversy surrounding this album release. His mother and kids are apparently saying that it’s not Michael’s voice in these songs, and it’s in fact an impersonator (read full story here). I’d like to think that no record company would go that low to make a quick buck, but sadly, you never know. The single drops on Monday, and it will most certainly be scrutinized closely to try to determine if it’s authentic. Le sigh.
