Michael Jackson New Album 'Xscape'

Michael Jackson album: Xscape

I know this post comes pretty late after the news that a new Michael Jackson album would be released. However, I have been contemplating whether or not it is actually good news. If you know me well, you will  know that I am the biggest Michael Jackson fan ever. I would love to hear new MJ material, he is and always will be my number 1 music idol. However, I was, and still am just a little concerned as to who is going to be profiting in Michael's absence. Obviously the Michael Jackson estate will get a cut, but who else? Sony? Yes of course they will get something, and personally I would rather they don't continue to make coin out of Michael's fame.

Anyway, moving on to the details about the album.  The album is a collaborative effort between L.A Reid, Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon, John McClain, Rodney Jerkins and others. It will feature songs from Michael Jackson's catalogue, and it will also include 8 new unheard tracks.

A statement from LA Reid read:  
'Modern music and artistry would look and sound completely different if not for the groundbreaking contributions Michael Jackson gifted to the world. 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' L.A. Reid announced.

Pre orders commenced on April 1st on iTunes. The official release date for Xscape is May 13.
