The world is buzzing yet again over the King of Pop’s upcoming posthumous album release.

Justin Timberlake revealed recently via Instagram that he will be on Michael Jackson’s album titled Xscape. Timberlake posted the cover art for the single “Love Never Felt So Good”, where he collaborated with the late Michael Jackson. However, this collaboration is only a bonus track on Jackson’s highly anticipated album.

The original version of the single “Love Never Felt So Good” was recorded and produced in 1983 with Paul Anka, and has since been “contemporized” by Anka and John McClain, according to a press release from Epic Records. The label says the song has “a magic combination of the new and original production that retains the track’s analog, early 80’s feel, while also sounding right at home with the disco-soul inflected music of today”. The single will be available for purchase on May 2nd.

Listen to the original track yourself!

This track is apparently the first on Michael Jackson’s posthumous album. The album will include eight previously unheard songs that were originally recorded from the years of 1983 to 1999. Sony’s Columbia Epic Records signed a long-term deal with Jackson’s estate to later release music from the large archives of Jackson’s recordings.

Standard and deluxe editions of the album are set to be released on May 13th. However, you can preorder Xscape now.
