NEW MICHAEL JACKSON ALBUM IN MAY 2014
Epic Records, in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release Xscape, an album of new music by Michael Jackson on May 12.
The record is executive produced by Epic Records chairman and CEO L.A. Reid with the list of producers include global hitmakers Timbaland (lead producer), Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome 'Jro Harmon and John McClain.
After mining by the Estate of Jackson’s archives, Reid was granted unlimited access to the four decades worth of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals. Reid then teamed up top producers to 'contemporise'.
The new album will feature eight brand new recordings. A deluxe edition of Xscape will include a selection of the recordings in their original form.
The title of this album honours Jackson’s album naming process. He always chose a song from the album to name his projects and, beginning with Thriller, used only one word titles.
