    It's been disproven. A hoax, apparently.

    LOL. Is he even Miki Howard's son? I'm sure she could shut this down, if so.

    Awesome :up:

    People complain about the "Michael" album, but I thought it was good. I liked 4 out of 10 songs on there :hehe:

    Hopefully this will be as well.

    XSCAPE

    LONG AWAITED NEW MUSIC FROM MICHAEL JACKSON


    OUT ON EPIC RECORDS MAY 13

    EPIC CHIEF L.A. REID TEAMS UP WITH TOP PRODUCERS TO “CONTEMPORIZE” SONGS FROM ICONIC ARTIST’S ARCHIVE

    March 31, 2014 — New York, NY — On May 13, 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. The XSCAPE standard and Deluxe Editions are available for pre-order beginning April 1 on iTunes.com/MichaelJackson and elsewhere, and available at all retailers worldwide on May 13.

    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 hitmakers 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.

    John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson said, “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. These tracks, in many ways, capture that spirit. We thank L.A. Reid for his vision.”

    XSCAPE is a long awaited collection of exciting new music that will thrill the legions of fans of one of the world’s most revered and best-selling artists, as well as attract a whole new generation discovering his artistry for the first time. In conjunction with the release of XSCAPE, Epic / Sony Music will launch an unprecedented global campaign with the One Sony sister companies, Sony Corporation, Sony Mobile Communications, and Sony Network Entertainment International drawing from all of Sony’s strengths and consumer reach.

    "Michael has long been a treasured member of the larger Sony family," said Kazuo Hirai, President and CEO, Sony Corporation. "Starting with the release of ‘Off The Wall’ in 1979, Sony Music Entertainment has since released all of Michael’s recordings. We are thrilled and privileged to be collaborating as One Sony to celebrate Michael’s latest legacy, and bringing his fans an exclusive experience through our upcoming initiatives with our products and services."

    More news about Michael Jackson’s upcoming album will be revealed in the coming weeks. Keep visiting www.michaeljackson.com for new details.

    I'm digging the new version of Escape. Still, original is better, so it's great we're having both.

    Does it cancel out people still thinking Michael was probably guilty? Probably not, unfortunately.

    But it shows you what kind of character his real accuser was. How do you trust a man like that? How can you trust Jordan?

    Everybody from from Evan, Wade Robson, Tom Sneddon and Diane Dimond had agendas to see Michael go down. His reputation today is still being cut and scarred by those figures and more.
    Those people don't live in an honest world. Because there is nothing to be gained from telling the truth about Michael Jackson. Lies are much more profitable.

    It's official. The first single (to be released today) of Xscape, "Love Never Felt So Good", will feature Justin Timberlake.

    A joyous occasion of Michael's new album has been halted due to Jimmy Safechuck joining the Wade Robson bandwagon.

    It's like this is planned.

    Robson accuses Michael at the time of the AEG trial, dirtying Michael in the minds of the jury. And now with his new album released, He's coincidentally accused again.
    Safechuck himself coming up with the same flimsy excuses as Robson - though Robson has used a few excuses to excuse himself :whatever:

    It's why I can't and don't believe these people. I believe the victims of Jerry Sandusky and (some, not all) Jimmy Savile victims, because there is always consistency with the claims.

    Every MJ "victim" get caught up in their shoelaces and are surrounded by such ******** and questionable circumstances.

    I'm digging this new CD :up:

    Edit: Finished listening to it and I love all of 'em! :) Great birthday gift for myself :funny: I'm gonna take a closer listen to the rest tonight and figure out which is my favorite track.

    This album is 12x better than that shady Michael CD where half of the CD doesn't even sound like MJ. :up:

    I bought a bootleg MJ album in Australia in 2007 or so and about 3 or 4 of "Xscape's" songs were on there so this album isn't entirely new to me.

    But I bought the deluxe edition of "Xscape". Listened to the contemporary tracks as well as the originals about 3 or 4 times through. It's a really great and solid MJ album. MUCH better than 2010's "Michael" album where half the tracks weren't even him. I can't even remember most of the songs off that album.

    "Xscape" on the other hand seems to be of a much higher true quality with more craft and dedication. The album feels more like they want to honor and represent MJ as the king rather then just seeing dollar signs.

    From the album title, to the artwork, to the font used seems very in line to what Michael Jackson was doing with his previous albums and fits in visually like a single sequenced glove. The music is very good as well. I found myself singing them to myself throughout the past couple days which is a great sign. I'm trying to think of my favorite tracks off the top of my head but just can't pick one or two because I really love them all. The contemporized versions are very good and I enjoy them very much, but it just feels truer listening to Michael's original versions as well.

    Sadly, we're never going to get a true new MJ album again, and I don't know how he'd feel about Sony doing this, but I'd say that it certainly doesn't tarnish his god given talents. If anything it proves that his 8-30 year old demos are better than most of today's modern pop. I'll gladly place thing alongside MJ's previous albums and recommend it to fans who want more MJ.

    There's never going to be another "Thriller" or "Bad" just lying around the 'ol MJ vaults waiting to be discovered...but if there's more songs like what's offered on "Xscape", then I'll be a happy MJ fan and Michael will stay the king forever.
