On May 13th, Epic Records, in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release ‘XSCAPE’, an album of new music by Michael Jackson. The project features eight new tracks, which the world will be hearing for the very first time on the new album. For the ultimate fan experience, ‘XSCAPE’ will also be available in a Deluxe Edition, which includes all of the sourced Michael Jackson recordings in their original form. The ‘XSCAPE’ standard and Deluxe Edition’s are available for pre-order beginning April 1st on iTunes.com/MichaelJackson and elsewhere, and available at all retailers worldwide on May 13.
‘XSCAPE’ is executive produced by L.A. Reid, who, after an initial mining of Jackson’s archives by the Estate, was granted unlimited access to the treasures representing four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals.
“Modern music and artistry would look and sound completely different if not for the groundbreaking contributions Michael Jackson gifted to the world,” remarked 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.”
