A new song, “Breaking News,” from the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, hit the Web this morning. The first single from Jackson’s new album, Michael, is streaming live from his website. The album is set for release on December 14.

According to reports, “Breaking News” was completed after Jackson’s passing in 2009. But some are questioning if it is indeed Jackson’s voice on the track, even though the singer was notorious for recording loads of unreleased songs.

“Breaking News” addresses the media’s long-time obsession with the superstar. It opens with a series of headlines of allegations and lawsuits made against the entertainer. The track is reminiscent of previous songs in the King of Pop’s catalog like “Leave Me Alone,” from his Bad album, and tracks “Tabloid Junkie” and “Scream,” a duet with sister Janet Jackson, from his History: Past, Present and Future Book 2 album.

Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, was recently interviewed by Oprah, confessing that her son was addicted to plastic surgery among other revelations. The interview is scheduled to air today. The Guardian reports that Katherine Jackson says many of the songs to be released on Jackson’s new studio effort are fake. The Guardian says, “Katherine Jackson is disappointed with the compilation, claiming some of the singer’s former associates gave the label ‘false tracks.'”

    I would be absolutely shocked if this were real. It doesn’t sound like him at all… the timbre of the voice, the inflections… it just sounds like a very good imitation.
