Uh Oh – – Jacko makes a COMEBACK-O!
Michael Jackson (music) has entered a recording studio in Ireland (The home of yours truly!)to begin laying down tracks for his next album, which looks to be collaboration with Black Eyed Peas producer/rapper Will.I.Am.
“I like what [Will.I.Am] is doing and thought it would be interesting to collaborate or just see how the chemistry worked,” Jackson told the Access Hollywood television show. “I think he’s doing wonderful, innovative, positive, great music.”
The reclusive pop star made his remarks in an interview, scheduled to begin airing this week, where he discussed a variety of topics including his upcoming rare public appearance next month at the World Music Awards in London.
The as-yet-untitled album, when released, would be Jackson’s first since 2001’s “Invincible.” The set is slated for release on the Bahrain-based Two Seas Records label.
Jackson, who moved to Bahrain following his well-publicized legal troubles in the US, told the site that he has continued to write new songs in the interim between official releases. “I am always writing a potpourri of music,” he said. “I want to give the world escapism through the wonder of great music and to reach the masses.”
The performer will receive the Diamond Award in London next month, given to performers who have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. Previous recipients include Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey, Bon Jovi and Celine Dion.
