Default Y'all coppin that new Michael?

Epic Records and Michael Jackson's estate have announced they'll release "Xscape," an 8-song collection of previously unreleased tracks from the late King of Pop, on May 13.

Label ceo, and the project's executive producer, L.A. Reid, took the lead in cultivating recordings from Jackson in which his vocals were completed, and went about "contemporizing" each. The album's lead producer was Timbaland, with additional work courtesy of Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon and John McClain.

"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," Reid said in a statement on Monday. "We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world."

"Xscape" continues the tradition of naming Jackson's albums after one of its songs. The title track was written and produced by Jackson and Jerkins, who recorded the original with the singer.

Epic will release a deluxe edition of the album that will include all the sourced recordings in their original form. Both the standard and Deluxe Editions are available Tuesday (April 1) for pre-order on iTunes and elsewhere.

A global campaign will incorporate One Sony sister companies, including Sony Network Entertainment. In February, Sony and Jackson's estate announced a partnership with Sony Mobile that saw the release of an ad incorporating a new version of the track "Slave to the Rhythm."

More information, including track listing, will be released soon.

Jackson's history on Billboard charts is, of course, legendary. He tallied 13 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s, the best sum of any male soloist. (And, that's not including his four No. 1s as part of the Jackson 5.) He also scored six No. 1s (as a soloist) on the Billboard 200, from 1982's "Thriller" through 2009's posthumous "This Is It" soundtrack. "Thriller" is the all-time top-selling studio album in the U.S., according to the RIAA, which has certified the landmark set as 29-times Platinum. His total U.S. album sales stand at 75.5 million, according to the RIAA.

Thoughts?

Went to Youtube to listen to the title track, and it was pretty much what I expected.

Forced contemporary sound, and confirmation of what I already knew, that he devolved into a terrible singer toward the end of his career, likely due to all the nose surgeries.


No way in hell I'm padding the pockets of company executives and his clown ass family to cop this garrbage.

Surprised it took them this long. Usually executors of dead singers/performers estates and record companies waste no time capitalizing on the untimely death of said performers. I think Tupac has made far more money after dying than he did while he was alive, released more records too.

Just remembered they did that movie about MJ's last tour, so they got the party started on time.

It's rather easy turning white. If you're interested, there are certain chants you can do before bed each night. The process typically takes about 2 years but you need to be committed.

Was never a fan. Funny how people went from hating him, using him as hate references to ruling him king.

He was "King of Pop" long before he died.

He did earn that nickname. Michael wasn't original in any one way performance-wise. But he was a one of a kind person. The 1980s were good to Michael Jackson. The 1990s, not so much, that is when the world witnessed his transition from being a midnight oil burning performer, to a creepy guy with special needs that made no logical sense to most human beings.

I have Spotify (as well as an internet connection with youtube), so yes, I'm sure i'll cop that Michael in that I will click a link or two and eventually listen to at least most of those 8 songs.
