XSCAPE, new track from Michael Jackson, hits the internet.
When Michael Jackson died in 2009, he left an enduring legacy and some unreleased tunes as well. On Wednesday (April 9), one of those unreleased gems, "XSCAPE," found its way onto the Internet. The upbeat pop track starts with a brief six-second skit, which is made to sound like someone (presumably Michael) has escaped from a prison. "He's gone," someone says before we hear an alarm go off and a gun cock back.
The track is the title song off of MJ's upcoming posthumous album XSCAPE. Jackson wrote the song with Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, who produced a chunk of the King of Pop's last proper LP, Invincible, in 2001.
