Towelie Posted March 31, 2014 Share Posted March 31, 2014 XSCAPE: New Album Coming May 13th March 31, 2014 It was announced today that on May 13th Epic Records, in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release XSCAPE, an album of new music by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. XSCAPE is executive produced by Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid. After mining by the Estate of Jacksons archives, 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 Jacksons essence and integrity, creating the best music youve never heard. The list of producers include global hitmakers Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain. 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. Both the standard and Deluxe Editions are available April 1st for pre-order on iTunes (Smarturl.it/xscape) and elsewhere. The title of this album honors Michaels album naming process. He always chose a song from the album to name his projects and, beginning with THRILLER, used only one word titles, each with an edgy quality to them. This is true of the new project. John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson said, Michael was always on the cutting edge and was constantly reaching out to new producers, looking for new sounds. He was always relevant and current. These tracks, in many ways, capture that spirit. We thank L.A. Reid for his vision. Full press release below and more news about Michael Jacksons upcoming album will be revealed in the coming weeks. Keep visiting www.michaeljackson.com for new details.
