Album of unheard Michael Jackson songs to be released in May
Eight previously unreleased songs by the late Michael Jackson will be part of a new album, Xscape, the singer’s estate and Sony Music Entertainment’s Epic Records said on Monday.
The songs were unearthed from Jackson’s archive of recorded material by LA Reid, the chairman and chief executive of Epic Records. Xscape will be released on 13 May.
The new album is the latest venture for Jackson’s estate to capitalise on the posthumous popularity of the King of Pop.
Jackson died in 2009 at age 50 in Los Angeles from an overdose of the powerful anaesthetic propofol given to him by his personal physician while he was rehearsing for a series of 50 comeback concerts in London.
