The new song, entitled Do You Know Where Your Children Are, tells the story of a 12-year-old girl who runs away from her abusive stepfather and turns to prostitution.

It is one of eight tracks recorded by the singer before his death in June 2009 at the age of 50 which will feature on the new album Xscape, set to be released in May.

In one of the song’s verses Jackson sings:’She wrote that she is tired of step-daddy using her/Saying that he’ll buy her things, while sexually abusing her,’ according to the Daily Mirror.According to leaked lyrics from the chorus, the song continues: ‘Do you know where your children are? Because it’s now twelve o’clock/If they’re somewhere out on the street just imagine how scared they are.’

The track includes the line: ‘Save me (from this living hell) Save me (cause I don’t wanna know)’, and fans of Jackson have speculated that it was written in response to abuse claims made against the singer.
