Epic Records, in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release "XSCAPE", an album of new music by the internationally beloved music icon and King of Pop, Michael Jackson, The project features eight new tracks, which the world will be hearing for the very first time on the new album, For the ultimate fan experience, XSCAPE will also be available in a Deluxe Edition, which includes all of the sourced Michael Jackson recordings in their original form.
XSCAPE is executive produced by Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A, Reid, who, after an initial mining of Jackson's archives by the Estate, was granted unlimited access to the treasures representing four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals.
Reid curated the final list of recordings to deliver to the producers, who retooled the production to add a fresh, contemporary sound that retains Jackson's essence and integrity, It's a process Reid calls "contemporizing." The album's lead producer, Timbaland was one of a handful of producers Reid believed had the gravitas, depth and range to creatively engage with Jackson's work, Additional producers include global hit makers Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon and John McClain.
"Modern music and artistry would look and sound completely different if not for the groundbreaking contributions Michael Jackson gifted to the world," remarked L.A, Reid. "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."
The title of this album honors Michael's album naming process, He always chose a song from the album to name his projects and, beginning with THRILLER, used only one word titles, each with an edgy quality to them. This is true of the new project. Written by Michael Jackson and Jerkins, and produced by Jackson and Jerkins, 'Xscape' has further significance in that it is the one track on the album that was 'contemporized' by the producer who recorded it originally in the studio with Michael.
