Michael Jackson will release a posthumous album of previously unreleased songs in November.
The ‘King of Pop’ died in June 2009 of acute Propofol intoxication by intravenous injection of another. His personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray is currently facing charges of involuntary manslaughter for his involvement in Michael’s death.
The new album, which has yet to be named, will feature 10 new tracks, including collaborations with Akon, Will.i.am and Ne-Yo. It is also rumoured to feature several songs recorded in the 1980s that didn’t make the cut for his hit album Bad.
Michael’s former manager Frank DiLeo has spoken about the new record in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. He said he has over 100 completed tracks in his Michael vault and is looking forward to seeing what the singer’s fans think of them.
"There are a couple of songs we recorded for the Bad album that we had to cut that are just sensational," Frank told the publication.
Rodney Jerkins, who produced Michael’s 2001 Invincible album, is currently putting the finishing touches on the record.
The new LP is the first release in a ten-album deal Michael’s estate signed with Sony BMG in March. The $250 contract million will see nine more records released before December 2017.
