Sony Music executives were given unprecedented access to hours and hours of raw, unreleased Jackson gems by the Jackson Estate, which span four decades of the King of Pop's career. After selecting eight songs, the tracks were finished and mastered by contemporary producers, such as Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain. However, a deluxe version of Xscape will also feature the songs in their original, untouched form. Sony Music has yet to detail the disc contents and track list further, but promise new information will be forthcoming.
