While Katherine Jackson is off releasing a previously unreleased Michael Jackson song of her own, Sony Music is giving us a wee taste of the first single to be released from the late Michael Jackson‘s first posthumous album of new material (which, it was announced this week, will hit stores on December 14). Altho the new single, titled Breaking News, won’t be released in full until Monday, today we get to enjoy a sneak preview of the “new” single:
Now, bear in mind, this is just a tiny taste of the song. Sony posted a short promo video clip of the song on it’s official Michael Jackson website that features no actual vocals … just a video montage lead-in into an instrumental part of the track. Listen to it in full, after the jump …
We won’t know until we hear the track in full if the song sounds like Michael Jackson or not (Katherine and members of the Jackson family do NOT think the song is a genuine MJ song) but I’m pretty sure Sony Music knows what it’s doing with the collection of MJ songs they now own. It’ll be interesting to see if Katherine will continue to release MJ music herself to compete with the releases to come from Sony Music. There may be a huge onslaught of new music from Michael Jackson very soon.
