Michael Jackson Xscape Cover

Xscape Album Cover

No April Fool. MICHAEL JACKSON is back. Well, not alive but with a new posthumous album titled Xscape. It will come out on May 13th and contains eight previously unreleased tracks.

The songs were revised by various producers such as TIMBALAND, RODNEY JERKINS, STARGATE and JOHN MCCLAIN who gave them a contemporary sound. The material was chosen by executive producer and Epic Records CEO Antonio ‘L.A.’ REID.

There will also be a deluxe version that includes the original recordings.

The last studio album MICHAEL JACKSON released before his death in 2009, was 2011’s  Invincible.

Below you find the video for JACKSON‘s 1996 single They Don’t Care About Us, which is one of the most controversial pieces The King of Pop ever released because of critisized lyrics like Jew Me, sue me, everybody do me, kick me, kike me, don’t you black or white me. Of course JACKSON didn’t mean the lyrics anti-Semitic.
