First Listen: Michael Jackson's "Breaking News"

by at . Comments

After controversy surrounding Howard Mann, Katherine Jackson and the new Michael Jackson single that was really just a remix of "Destiny," the King of Pop's latest, posthumous effort has actually been released, and "Breaking News" is terrific.

It's the first song from Sony's new Jackson album, due out later this year. "Breaking News" is vintage Jackson, from the vocals down to the catchy beats.

The much-anticipated song is a harsh look at the media through the eyes of MJ, who knew a thing or two about scrutiny. The lyrics have the feel of a defiant, comeback proclamation from an unparalleled entertainer with something to prove.

As we previously reported, the song was recorded at the home of music producer Eddie Cascio, where Michael and his children lived for four months in 2007.
