Yes this is for real. Epic records is getting geared up for the release of late king Michael Jackson‘s posthumous album XSCAPE on May 3rd. It will be comprised of 8 previously unreleased tracks plucked from Jackson’s estate vaults by LA Reid and polished by an elite team of producers headed up by Timbaland.
Yesterday, what appeared to be the album-titled track hit the internet. “XSCAPE” which was originally written by Jackson and Rodney Jerkins is of the only tracks that is actually being re-worked by the producer who crafted on the original version. The almost 6 minute long record is textbook genuis Michael and although it does stray from the current contemporary mainstream pop sound Jackson’s immortality is felt in his unprecedented delivery and lines. The King lives on!
