Michael Jackson has returned to the recording studio with the intent of releasing a new album next year on the label owned by Sheik Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the son of Bahrain's king. "I am incredibly excited about my new venture," Jackson says in a statement. "I am enjoying being back in the studio making music." Oops, I forgot he then thrust his fist in the air and squealed, "Hoooooo!"
