MICHAEL JACKSON 'Michael' [Release Date 13/12/2010]
The much anticipated album of newly completed recordings from Michael Jackson entitled 'Michael' will be released on December 13 by Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson.
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 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.
The album cover of 'Michael' was created by painter Kadir Nelson in 2009. In the oil painting, Kadir – who is known for story telling through his art – takes us on a journey through some key moments and important people in Michael Jackson's life.
