The rumors are true. Michael Jackson left a plethora of music behind and fans are finally going to get a chance to listen to it.
Epic Records, in conjunction with MJ's Estate, will release XSCAPE. The album features 8 new tracks from the late King of Pop and will be made available in a deluxe edition for the ultimate fan experience that will feature sourced Michael Jackson recordings in their original form.
“Modern music and artistry would look and sound completely different if not for the groundbreaking contributions Michael Jackson gifted to the world,” L.A. Reid said in a press release.
“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.”
XSCAPE is available for pre-order today on iTunes.com/MichaelJackson and will be released worldwide on May 13!
"Michael has long been a treasured member of the larger Sony family," said Kazuo Hirai, President and CEO, Sony Corporation.
"Starting with the release of ‘Off The Wall’ in 1979, Sony Music Entertainment has since released all of Michael’s recordings. We are thrilled and privileged to be collaborating as One Sony to celebrate Michael’s latest legacy, and bringing his fans an exclusive experience through our upcoming initiatives with our products and services."
