    Didn't know about the bass being laid down. Thanks for that. Can't wait for this and how can you disagree with Jerkins? Albums are journeys you take with the artist. Agree with him 100% on that.

    I agree with Jerkins also. I just hope he doesn't get his way and he produce all of it. Not a fan of his really. Some songs he did with mike were great but the dance tracks were week. Michaels vocals on Invinceable,Heartbreaker and unbreakable were awesome but the beats and sounds I didn't like. Overproduced too much computer stuff not enough real instruments. IMO

    I think that's most likely. They have been talking about this on the Queen camp as well.

    And regarding Brian May, do "tapes" mean one song or more? I dunno, but I suspect more.

    Rodney Jerkins has the ability to work wonders. Listen to Escape and We've Had Enough -- assuming the other outtakes are anywhere near as good as those two, we have our entertainment cut out for us. I'm putting my faith in all the producers and musicians working on this until I'm given a reason not to.

    @Rudolf; The way Brian wrote it would suggest that he was working on several different songs, not just the Michael Jackson duets.

    While an album should flow and go on an emotional ride.. That can be done by different producers.. Michael himself was working with many different writers/producers from 2006-2009.. Its more so song selection that wud create a feel of an album.. While producers do highly effect the sounds, song selection would bring a flow that multiple producers would still work..

    For recently recorded tracks just have the producers that were working on it with Michael complete it.. And songs that may be outdated have a new producer working it with a co producer that originally worked on it.. Or if the producer has made a hit within the past few years let that be it.. Just the one producer.. That's what I'd do..

    It may suggest that but we still can't be sure of anything.

    So I imagine an announcement from the Estate should be coming soon? With all these producers announcing they're working on MJ songs, there just has to be something going on.

    Who is he?? is this the black guy that is a part of Lisa Presley's band when she goes out on her supposed tours? I think he's the nephew of Chuck Berry if I'm not mistaken

Perhaps the info about this Queen track was the first clue we had about a new MJ album coming.
    Orbit said it`s on a Queen-record

    Just to bring some fairness to the producers that have worked with Michael that some here are reluctant to want on new unreleased music.

    The producers roll is not to create the music, they guide the production process. So to blame a producer on instrumentals of tracks is I would say 70% unfair. While producers do effect the sound, they don't create the instrumentals of the tracks. For the most part... There are producers now that venture into creating instrumentals but that's not the real roll of a true producer.

    In recent history producers have been going broader with the roll, its not the producers job to make the instrumentals..

    Its often the writer that brings the beat/instramental to the table and the producer brings it to reality.. When Michael beat boxes and brings in the song, and tells the producer what he wants to hear. He makes it happen.. Mj unreleased songs have a beat already (most should ) the producer would use that base and fine tune it or build around it to create something..

    They could (which I really wouldnt want) strip everything, use the vocals and get a whole new instrumental to it..

    He got a lot of producers/writers for Invincible, but then he had more tracks to be selected for the album. Now with only 1 or 2 tracks he isn't satisfied. Not to talk about the bad-mouthing of Invincible after release. He got a big ego.

    I'm not really worried about chart success with unreleased material, however i think it is VERY likely that this album is going to get a lot of air play.
    the 3 biggest songs of the summer (maybe even this year) (arguably) are Treasure by Bruno Mars, Get Lucky by Daft Punk, and Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke, ALL of which are HEAVILY influenced by MJ... So i wouldn't be surprised if it had a few hit singles.

    I appreciate The fans that are not really interested in chart. I personally am, while I wouldn't be majorly disappointed if his next album didn't really sell well... I want a statement made from new mj music, saying "I really am the man and my music is timeless." And for the new music he was working on 2006-2009 "I still got it" I'd love major radio play and for people to fall in love with the music.. I get tired of others thinking I live in the past because its so much mj for me.. People tend to like and respect his work, but they think of him as an 80s-90s artist.. No his music transcends time..

    I also believe he said he was going to save MJ's career before Invincible came out. Around the time people were rumouring the title to be the "Burning Records" or something like that.. will have to check/remember what it was.
