New Michael Jackson Album XSCAPE To Be Released In May

XSCAPE, a new album from the late Michael Jackson, is set to hit shelves May 13 via Epic Records. The LP, produced by Timbaland, features eight previously unreleased cuts compiled by executive producer L.A. Reid, who was granted exclusive access to Jackson's vault for the release.

"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," Reid said in a statement on Monday.

"We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world."

In addition to Timbaland, Reid recruited Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon and John McClain to assist with production on the record.
