Jackson was said to have recorded some tracks with the late Freddie Mercury, former frontman of Queen, in the early ’80s. Sony, who owns the rights to Jackson’s remaining material, has admitted that their website was hacked into and a number of Jackson’s unreleased tracks have been stolen!
The label declined to comment on how many or which songs have been stolen, however it is being reported that one of the songs stolen was a recording that Jackson had done with will.i.am.
BBC News reports that Sony’s computer system was hacked into almost a year ago, last April, following a hack on Sony Playstation Network. Two men from the UK were arrested last year in connection with this theft and are due to stand trial next January.
