New Michael Jackson Album 'Xscape' Will Feature a Song About Child Abuse
As one of eight fresh unreleased tracks on Michael Jackson's upcoming posthumous effort "Xscape," "Do You Know Where Your Children Are?" tells the story of an abused 12-year-old who leaves home and turns to prostitution.

In one of the verses, MJ sings, "She wrote that she is tired of step-daddy using her/Saying that he'll buy her things, while sexually abusing her."

AsĀ Mirror reports, some fans claim that the tune, featuring the repetition of the "save me from this living hell" phrase, was written as a direct response to sexual abuse claims made against Jackson.

As reported, the album is due on May 13 via Epic Records featuring Timbaland at the head of production. Check out the list of confirmed track titles below.

"Xscape" confirmed tracks:

1. Xscape
2. A Place With No Name
3. Do You Know Where Your Children Are
4. Slave to the Rhythm
5. Chicago (She Was Lovin' Me)
6. Blue Gangsta
7. Love Never Felt So Good
