Ahead of the world premiere of Michael Jackson's new single "Breaking News", an official trailer is brought forward to tide fans over. It kicks off with footage of media around the globe reporting breaking news to his tabloid scandals and legal troubles.
Before the teaser comes to an end, an upbeat tune which is most likely part of the upcoming single is played on the background. No vocal is featured on it, but text announcing the November 8 release of the song is put on the display as reminder and a bit of Michael's signature croon closes the trailer.
The album where "Breaking News" will appear is simply titled "Michael" and will come out in the United States on December 14. It was recorded in 2007 in some places from a friend's home in New Jersey to studios in Las Vegas and Los Angeles with a small group of handpicked collaborators.
One of the producers who has worked with him is Mark Ronson. He is now waiting a phone call from the late King of Pop's label to find out whether or not his production work makes the cut to the album, sharing to the Daily Star, "It's a really beautiful song called 'Lovely Way'. I don't know if it's made the album but I hope he would dig it if he was here. It's in the vein of Elton John's 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' and John Lennon's 'Imagine'."
