The title track from Michael Jackson's forthcoming posthumous album "Xscape" has surfaced online. Check it out below.
As Gigwise notes, the funky "Xscape" was written by Jackson and Rodney Jerkins during recording sessions for what was to be the final album Jackson released whilst he was alive, 2001's "Invincible." It certainly has an early 00s sound to it, and is similar in style to "Invincible"'s lead single "You Rock My World."
Xscape is the second record to be released after Jackson's death, the first being 2010's rather poorly-recieved Michael. It will feature 8 unreleased tracks from Jackson's estate which Epic Records boss LA Reid gained access to, then called on the likes of Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins and Stargate to "contemporize" them.
Xscape, which has been tipped by bookmakers to become the biggest-selling record of the year, will also feature appearances from Mary J Blige, Questlove and D'Angelo.
