Pretty sure they're talking about State of Shock, which if I remember correctly is the song the Jackson Estate gets to release, since Queen put out There Must Be More To Live Than This.

Which seems a very odd agreement...Queen get to release There Must Be More To Life Than This, but only a mix that the Jackson Estate approve and arrange and which Queen really don't like at all, and then the Jackson Estate gets to release State of Shock, but only the version that Brian and Roger oversee with Chris Thomas as their producer of choice!!

The Michael Jackson Estate are being very odd with their release practises.

The 2010 deal with Sony was for 10 albums by the end of 2017. The deal was extended (with unspecified terms) from January 1st 2018, but so far nothing new has been released.

So, in that time frame, we've had:

2010: 'Michael' ("studio" album)
2010: Michael Jackson's Vision (3x dvd set of music videos)
2011: Immortal (remix album)
2012: Bad 25 / Live at Wembley July 16, 1988 (reissued & expanded studio album + live concert)
2014: Xscape ("studio" album)
2017: Scream (Halloween themed compilation)

Even if you split Bad 25 and Wembley 88 out, PLUS you count the dvd box-set as an album, that's still not met the terms and conditions of the 2010 deal by three full albums.

Perhaps they've deliberately held back following the mostly negative reaction to the studio albums - the first with its rumoured fake tracks, and the second with some poor quality remixes. Knowing it's the 10th anniversary of his passing next year, perhaps they've decided to go all out in 2019 and stay on the down-low in the meantime.
"Years will come, years will go, and politicians will do f*** all to make the world a better place. But all over the world, young men and young women will always dream dreams and put those dreams into song."
