New York – A new posthumous album of previously unreleased music by Michael Jackson will be released on May 13.

Epic Records and the late 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 LA Reid referred to the work as “contemporising” in yesterday’s news release. A deluxe version will include the original recordings.

Few details were shared yesterday, but Reid did say 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 the age of 50 from a lethal dose of an anesthetic.
