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.

There are 2 screams in the "Breaking News" clip- the first happens around 35 seconds in, the second at 44 seconds, and the second one sounds exactly like it was ripped from whatever recording of Michael's in which he did the scream in the SECOND video you posted of HIS screams, the one at 24/25 seconds in.

As a song writer who demoed multiple tracks for MJ. Let me tell you this. There would be hundreds of songs sent for an album. Almost all of them, we as producers and writers, would find "sound a likes". Reason being, because Michael's camp would want to hear what the song would sound like with MJ singing before they sent him into the studio. You can imagine the amount of tracks out there that aren't MJ. Be very suspect.

OMG People! Chill already! It is MJ for goodness sake. Stop worrying about the garbage out there. It's out there to get a reaction from us and it's working isn't it?

CD sales are going surpass Thriller no doubt. We have been waiting a long time for this.

Just wish he would have released this when he was alive. He was way too hard on himself.

Huge MJ fan....I dont how those of you that say its not him can determine one way or the other with the sample that was given. Wait for the cd then make your decision. It is ironic that the "sample" we were given has no lyrics tho.

Just because the beat sounds like a typical MJ song that doesn't mean that "scream" is real. Very easily could have been cut and pasted into the song anyway.
