New Michael Jackson album due in May
(04-01 12:05)

A new posthumous album of previously unreleased Michael Jackson music comes out May 13.
Epic Records and the late American pop singer's estate will release “Xscape,'' an album of eight new tracks that have been updated musically by producers including Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc'' Harmon and John McClain.
Executive producer L.A. Reid refers to the work as “contemporizing'' in a Monday news release. A deluxe version will include the original recordings.
Reid said the album is named for a track produced by Jackson and Jerkins, then later updated by Jerkins. It's the only song on the album where the original producer freshened the music.
Jackson died in June 2009 at 50 from a lethal dose of an anesthetic.—AP
