Epic Records and the Estate of Michael Jackson will be releasing a new Jackson album that will be available on May 13.
The record company announced on Monday that Xscape will feature eight original songs never heard before, according to People. Epic Records Chairman and CEO, L.A. Reid, will act as executive producer in conjunction with superstar producers Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain.
“After mining by the Estate of Jackson’s archives, Reid was granted unlimited access to the treasures spanning four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals,” Michael Jackson’s website reads.
Xscape was named after the title track on the album of the same name, which was written and produced by Jackson and Jerkins.
“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, according to Billboard.
Xscape will be available on iTunes for pre-order on April 1.
