Per Epic Records CEO Antonio “LA” Reid, the album is a collection of “contemporized” Jackson songs filling the King Of Pop’s vocals atop of more modern production. “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,” Reid said in a statement on Monday. “We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world.”
