  • New controversy over posthumous Michael Jackson songs

    Several of the new songs on Michael Jackson’s posthumous record are being deemed “false tracks” by his mother, according to a report from the U.K. Guardian.

    The forthcoming album, due out December 14, features a number of songs that Katherine Jackson has claimed are not sung by Jackson. Sony records released the first single “Breaking News” via Jackson’s official website Monday, the same day a taped interview with Catherine Jackson will air on “Oprah.” According to a report from Canada’s CTV News, Katherine will claim on-air that some of the tracks are fake.

    According to the Guardian, “Breaking News” was recorded back in 2007 at a New Jersey studio with Jackson’s friends, the Cascio family. But aside from Katherine, even Joseph, Paris and Prince Jackson all believe the song is a fake.

    But “Breaking News” aside, even Katherine Jackson herself has been implicated in another “fake” release. On Friday, a song called “Opis None” was released from the website Jackson’s Secret Vault, and was described as “With L.O.V.E from Mrs. Jackson.”

    But the song was later identified as a remix of the 1978 Jackson Five song, “Destiny,” the Guardian reported. According to Katherine’s grandchild Taj, Katherine was not aware of the release and did not authorize it.
