Michael Jackson fans will get to hear some new un-released music from the King of Pop. The new project is titled “XSCAPE,” and it’s due to arrive on May 13 via Epic Records 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.
“Michael was always on the cutting edge and was constantly reaching out to new producers, looking for new sounds,” John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson, said in the release. “He was always relevant and current. These tracks, in many ways, capture that spirit. We thank L.A. Reid for his vision.”
