The record will include eight new songs which have been "contemporised" by producers including including Timbaland, Darkchild's Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain.

Curator of the project LA Reid said: "Modern music and artistry would look and sound completely different if not for the groundbreaking contributions Michael Jackson gifted to the world.

"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 honoured to present this music to the world."

The album's titled track, which was produced by Jerkins, was originally recorded for his 2001 album 'Invincible' but never made the final track list. 

'XSCAPE' will be available to pre-order worldwide from tomorrow, 1st April.
