will.i.am has stated on a video feed for MJJforum (MJJC's origins) that he's happy to work on MICHAEL JACKSONS COMEBAKC RECORD..
here's the video.
He's stated SEVERAL places/interviews that he's working on it.. Has even stated a few title tracks that COULD make it on the album.
Back in 2006 Michael himself said he's writting most of the songs for his new album.
Q: Have you started recording new material?
Q: How's it going so far?
Q:Who are you going to be working with?
A: Oh I'm just putting it together, mainly writting it myself and.. some other people.
There's another vid I cannot find on youtube right now, but at WMA he was asked when we'll here a new album from Michael Jackson. and he says. "I'm working on it now"
If this is not ENOUGH to satisfy the fact he IS recording a new album, IDK what is..
