A new album of Michael Jackson tracks, which have never been heard before, is coming out in December.

It's going to be called Michael, and is the first album of new tunes by the singer to be released since he died in June 2009.

His record company Sony isn't giving away many details, but we do know that the first single will be called Breaking News.

The singer was known to have recorded lots of music which was never released.

Jackson's last album was This is It, the soundtrack to a film about him preparing for a series of big concerts.

It was released after he died and topped the charts around the world.
