Sony to Katherine Jackson: You're Wrong About MJ

11/4/2010 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sony Music isn't buying the claim of Katherine Jackson and two of Michael Jackson's kids ... that some of the tracks on a soon-to-be-released MJ album are fake -- because one of the tracks in question is about to be released on michaeljackson.com on Monday.

1104_mj_cover_BN_01

The song -- "Breaking News" -- was recorded in 2007, at the New Jersey home of Eddie Cascio.  Jackson and his kids lived in the house for 4 months while Michael was recording.  We're told Prince, Paris and Katherine now believe the Cascio tracks are fake -- not Michael's voice.

But Sony has done a bunch of voice authentications, and the record company is convinced it's the real deal.  So a teaser will be released tomorrow, and the full song will be on the MJ website for one week, beginning Monday.

We're told 3 tracks recorded at the Cascio house will be included on the full album, which will be released on December 14.

Strange artwork. He didn't have sloping shoulders and a giraffe neck. And it was quite some time since he was black. Since there are many portraits of him on the cover, at least one of them could have been his later skin tone. Furthermore, hiss dressmakers and makeup artist claim he felt the glove was connected only to Billie Jean.

And I really, really hope Oprah is not on that cover somewhere.

I wholeheartedly agree aston.

Especially why no recent image of Michael? The cover just looks like a montage of his old videos.

Instead of "Michael" the album should be called " QUEEN MICHAEL" to match the picture and the artist.

And when did Michael have bags under his eyes like that?

The most devoted MJ fans will know whether this is him or not. There is a lot of unrelease material that has been on youtube since his death even though Sony has been trying hard to pull them down. Anyways fans determined which ones were MJ and which ones weren't and they were right on every track so they don't need to worry the truth will come out if it turns out to be a fake.

The cover is very beautiful and I can not stop crying! Regardless of this "impasse", yes, I'll buy the CD. Maybe the kids are fooling themselves, because they had young age of 10 and 09 years, so they could memorize the voice, without editing ... It is a very delicate situation, but I think that Sony would not make a mistake so big and having to answer to the world, after all, Michael is the greatest artist on the planet!

Well, I agree too. It is not only strange, but very ugly and messy as well. Bits and pieces hastily thrown together. Michael would never have approved of this ugly, UGLY, soulless artwork. Lets not hope this in an indicaton of the quality of the album.
And it is a big insult to Michael and to Michael´s fans that there are no recent pictures of him. That doesn´t sit well with me.
It is almost as if they are trying to eradicate the memory of Michael from the near last two decades.
Personally I love Michael through all of the phases of his life. He was beautiful always.

Are the voice authentications the same quality as those used by the FBI and other legal agencies? This should make Katherine and the children feel sure about whether or not the voice is Michael's.I don't think that the estate would use something that was not really Michael's voice,but then stranger things have happened in the past.

Michael Jackson: Deal For New Album Cut Late Last Night

"This “Breaking News”–also the title of the first single from Michael Jackson‘s new album, written and produced by Eddie Cascio.

Sony Music just sent out a cover picture for Michael Jackson‘s album — called “Michael”– set for December 14th.

Yesterday I was told there was no deal brokered yet between all the fractious parties in the Jackson camp. Co executor John McClain was still claiming that the vocals on some of the tracks weren’t Michael’s.

Sony seems to disagree. They’ve made their move.

MORE: The album will include at least four or five of the “Cascio” tracks, produced mostly by Teddy Riley, including the single. Apparently the estate settled all internal political issues, as outlined here first and exclusively (thanks TMZ for mucking around in our area).

The decision was made by all parties finally at 11pm last night.

And so it goes.

More to come, of course…"

Your right. He was always beautiful.

If this CD is supposed to contain new music, then why use old images?

It will be interesting to hear the new single. That in itself will predict whether this "project" either flops or succeeds in adding more hits to Michael's legacy.
