New music coming from Michael Jackson

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 01:08 p.m. HST, Mar 31, 2014

 A new posthumous album of previously unreleased Michael Jackson music comes out May 13.

Epic Records and the late pop singer's estate will release "Xscape," an album of eight new tracks that have been updated musically by producers including Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon and John McClain.

Executive producer L.A. Reid refers to the work as "contemporizing" in a Monday news release. A deluxe version will include the original recordings.

Few details were shared Monday, but Reid did say the album is named for a track produced by Jackson and Jerkins, then later updated by Jerkins. It's the only song on the album where the original producer freshened the music.

Jackson died in June 2009 at 50 from a lethal dose of an anesthetic.

Why don't they just let that guy rest in peace instead of still trying to get a piece of him?

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Actually Jackson's 'This Is It' movie compiling film footage for his London concert dress rehearsals just before he died was very entertaining and worth purchasing. Jackson sang spectacular and his supporting musicians, dancers, stage settings, etc were incredible. The guy was an awesome singer, songwriter, dancer and entertainer. Too bad he was so messed up, but usually the most gifted/talented entertainers end up dying before their time like Hendrix, Morrison, Joplin, Cobain, Belushi, Chris Farley, etc. and even easy music singer Karen Carpenter from anorexia.
