Strangefruitmusicblog is about to provide you with…ahum..news. Actually it took longer than I expected before… a rep for the Jackson estate exclusively told Rolling Stone an all-new Michael Jackson collection featuring 10 unreleased songs will be released this November. At the time of his death Jackson reportedly left hard drives filled with unheard music, much of it recorded during the King of Pop’s ’80s peak. Jackson’s manager Frank DiLeo told RS that he estimates that Jackson’s vaults contain more than 100 completed and unreleased songs, including collaborations with Akon, Will.i.am and Ne-Yo.
The album of never-before-heard Jackson songs will be the first in a 10-project, seven-year deal the Jackson estate inked with Sony Music in March 2010 — a $250 million pact that will also include reissues of Jackson’s classic albums, new greatest hits sets, a DVD collection of all Michael’s music videos and possibly a Cirque du Soleil show.
I’m eagerly awaiting this release..especially the unreleased tracks recorded during his peak in the 80’s. As usual Strange Fruit will keep you posted!!
