New Michael Jackson Album Xscape to Be Released in May

JacksonA new Michael Jackson album will soon be released in May by Sony and Epic records who made the announcement on Monday. XSCAPE is an album featuring 8 previously unreleased tracks which were handpicked by former X-Factor judge L.A. Reid.

The songs were chosen out of a very large collection spanning four decades of Jackson’s vocal work in the studio. Timbaland was lead producer on the project, along with a handful of other top producers including Rodney Jerkins, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon, Stargate and John McClain. The producers have said in a statement they trust Reid’s vision completely for the re-worked material.

The album promises to wow fans with a modern take on the King of Pop’s songs – what Reid is calling a “contemporized” sound. In a statement, Reid spoke about how Jackson’s contributions to music were simply groundbreaking. “We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world.” says Reid.

Jackson had a special naming process for his album titles. He would always chose one song from the album to be the title, and since releasing Thriller, would only use edgy one word titles.

This May, fans will hear the title track Xscape which is the one track on the new album re-worked by the original producer, Jerkins, who had originally recorded it in studio along with Michael. All unreleased tracks were originally written and produced by Jerkins and Jackson himself. “Michael was always on the cutting edge and was constantly reaching out to new producers, looking for new sounds. He was always relevant and current” say John Branca and John McClain.

The official press release on Jackson’s website states the new album “retains Jackson’s essence and integrity.” Sony Music was the first to release Jackson’s Off The Wall in 1979 and has released all of the pop king’s music since then. Sony stated being thrilled to be sharing Michael’s unreleased music, they are “bringing his fans an exclusive experience,” they say.

The album art is absolutely stunning, and “Bowie-Esque” some would say. It features the singer’s head popping out through what looks like a futuristic space suit without its helmet, glittered with stars. Pure perfection.

This is highly anticipated new music for the fans, a modern sound for one of the world’s biggest pop stars in history, now brought back to life thanks to Reid and his team. Reid takes great pride in presenting these new tracks and it is clear he is humbled to work alongside such a great team of hit makers to re-tool Jackson’s work.

In a bold statement, the official press release said the album will be “the best music you’ve ever heard” and is convinced it will attract a new generation of listeners to the magic that is Michael. Now that is something everyone can look forward to! More information about the album should be released in the coming weeks through Jackson’s website.

The Jackson album Xscape will be released May 13th with standard and deluxe editions available for pre-order starting April 1st on iTunes and everywhere else music is sold. The deluxe edition will include all of the new songs in their original form.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite. This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy.

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world religion. They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it. You can view videos about this on YouTube.

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple. They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple. They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple.

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality.

    GOD BLESS, JESUS LOVES YOU!
