On May 13th, the King of Pop will bless us all with new music!
Although Michael Jackson is no longer with us, his music will truly live on. Epic Records, in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release XSCAPE, an album of brand new songs from MJ.
Executive produced by Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid, Xscape’s lead producer is Timbaland and also features producers Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon and John McClain.
Using a method he calls “contemporizing”, Reid curated the final list of recordings to deliver to the producers, who retooled the production to add a fresh, contemporary sound that retains Jackson’s essence and integrity.
“Modern music and artistry would look and sound completely different if not for the groundbreaking contributions Michael Jackson gifted to the world,” remarked L.A. Reid. “Michael left behind some musical performances that we take great pride in presenting through the vision of music producers that he either worked directly with or expressed strong desire to work with. We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world.”
The project features eight new tracks, while the Deluxe Edition will include all of the sourced Michael Jackson recordings in their original form. Both will be available for pre-order beginning April 1 on iTunes.
