Epic Records and Michael Jackson’s estate have announced they’ll release “Xscape,” an 8-song collection of previously unreleased tracks from the late King of Pop, on May 13.

Label ceo, and the project’s executive producer, L.A. Reid,  took the lead in cultivating recordings from Jackson in which his vocals were completed, and went about “contemporizing” each. The album’s lead producer was Timbaland, with additional work courtesy of Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon and John McClain.

Epic will release a deluxe edition of the album that will include all the sourced recordings in their original form. Both the standard and Deluxe Editions are available Tuesday (April 1) for pre-order on iTunes and elsewhere.Via Billboard
