MJ to release first of several new albums from beyond the grave
Posted August 3, 2010on:
Legendary pop singer Michael Jackson’s first of the several new albums are due for release in November 2010, almost a year and a half after the singer died in June 2009.
The late King of Pop’s posthumous album features 10 never-before-heard songs from the King of Pop.
The album will be the first in a 10-project, seven-year deal worth 250 million dollars that Jackson estate executors signed with Sony Music bosses in March, a spokesperson for the estate confirmed.
Jackson left behind hard drives filled with previously unreleased music, with his former manager Frank DiLeo estimating Jackson”s vaults contain more than 100 completed and unreleased songs, including collaborations with Akon, will.i.am and Ne-Yo, reports The Daily Telegraph.
The tracks are expected to be included in the forthcoming release, alongside songs Jackson recorded at the peak of his career in the 1980s.
“There are a couple of songs we recorded for the Bad album that we had to cut that are just sensational,” DiLeo told RollingStone.com
