Music fans will get to hear new Michael Jackson music in May, nearly five years after the singer’s death in 2009. Titled “XSCAPE,” the record will arrive on May 13 via Epic Records and in conjunction with Jackson’s estate.
From the Epic Records website:
After mining by the Estate of Jackson’s archives, L.A. Reid was granted unlimited access to the treasures spanning four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals. Reid then teamed up top producers to “contemporize” the songs while retaining Jackson’s essence and integrity, creating the best music you’ve never heard. The list of producers include global hitmakers Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain.
According to a press release, “XSCAPE” will feature eight new songs, including the album’s title track.
