Epic Records will release an album of previously unheard Michael Jackson songs on May 13, the company announced in a statement Monday.

The eight-track album, called XSCAPE, consists of material culled from four decades of recordings made by the star before he passed away in 2009.

The material has been “comtemporized” by well-known producers such as Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins and Stargate, but fans who buy a deluxe edition of the album will also be able to hear the original versions.

The album will be available for pre-order from April 1.
