Michael Jackson's New Song -- Mystery Scream

11/5/2010 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sony has just released a teaser to Michael Jackson's new album "MICHAEL" due out next month ... but there's a big controversy over whether some of the vocals are real or fake.



In the teaser, which promotes the album's big song, "Breaking News," all we hear from Michael Jackson is a brief scream.



The question ... is it Michael Jackson's scream or that of an impostor???

By the way ... someone we know has heard the entire album and says it's "unbelievably good."  Our spy says some of the tracks sound a little like Justin Timberlake, but they are all Michael.

Why are all of you idiots saying it isn't him? May I remind you that had been years since Thriller, Billie Jean, and The Way You Make Me Feel. Of course his voice is going to sound different. Also, if you listen to his Thriller 25 covers with Akon and Will i am, his voice sounded different. People are just overreacting. It's Michael without a doubt. Stop wasting your time believing that it isn't.

That is Michael for sure! And there is no controversy about it. they are trying to make it into controversy.. Just a week or so ago they (media) said the album was delayed.. then we get an announcement of a release date.. Its all just dumb.. THIS IS MICHAEL.. the "aow" sound is VERY similar to the one MJ did in "GOT THE HOTS"... listen to the end of BREAKING NEWS.. then go to .22 seconds and tell me you don't hear the similarity..

If Michael's children say the voice is not their Father's, THEN IT'S NOT THEIR FATHER'S VOICE!!! ~ Michael's children would know their own Father's voice!

Boy some of you people are nasty. Michael Jackson was the best. I don't think it is him but like someone said they probably just cut and paste it in and that could just make it sound weird. Have to hear the whole thing.

Ok let me say this frankly. After skimming through the commets and viewing the poll, I have to admit that all you guys who think that this is a fake are a bunch of ignorant ****s.
First of all its ridiculous to draw conclusions upon the authenticity of a song on the basis of the first few seconds from the beat. We only hear some gasps from MJ, and they are from him. You'd know this if you had spent a modi*** of your miserable lifes in hearing Michael Jackson's music.
Second, no one, I say NO ONE can imitate MJ's voice. It is one of a kind and each despicable attempt to do so will inevitably result into a failure meaning the prompt recongition of an imitator. You don't need experts for this, you just need to listen to his music.
Third, you cannot trust MJ's family. They are mercenary and selfish. All they want is to get some money from this project and they even push MJ's kids to support them in their greedy works.
I even spotted comments like: "who cares" or similar, indicating a missing interest in new Michael Jackson material in the respective person who therewith also suggests that this interest is not there in general. This is not true. If you do not know this, you probably have lived in the middle of no where in the past few decades without any access to comunication or media. I feel sorry for you, really.

This album will top the charts worldwide.

people need to get a grip, it sounds like Michael Jackson

why do people always need to put a downer on this guy ? ive never been a big fan but come on.... its rediculous.

I think the song sounds good actually,and that scream sounds like MJ... similair to some screams i heard on his early stuff maybe ?

come on guys, and if it was fake think of all the lawsuits and theres no way it could be covered up.

Silly ... silly... silly
