EPIC RECORDS and the Estate of MICHAEL JACKSON will release XSCAPE, an album of new music by the deceased superstar, on MAY 13th. The project, featuring eight new tracks, 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 Editions are available for pre-order beginning APRIL 1st on iTunes.com/MichaelJackson and elsewhere, and available at all retailers worldwide on MAY 13th.
XSCAPE is executive produced by EPIC RECORDS Chairman/CEO 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,” REID said. “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.”
