MANAMA, Bahrain (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Michael Jackson has parted company with his new Bahrain record label, the BBC reported.
Jackson has spent much time in the Persian Gulf state since his acquittal in the California child abuse trial and had been reportedly working on his first new album since 2001. The album would have reunited Jackson with producer Ted Riley, with whom he worked previously on 'Remember the Time' and was tentatively scheduled for a 2007 ship date. Jackson had been working with Two Seas Records, a label that he reportedly started with Prince Abdulla Hamad Al-Khalifa, a member of the royal family of Bahrain.
Two Seas has stated that it never formalized an agreement with Jackson. The fate of the new album is currently unknown but it might be released on Jackson's own label, Michael Jackson Company. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers.
