Five years after his death, Jackson remains one of the most influential artists of all time. In an effort to keep his musical legacy alive, Epic Chairman Antonio "LA" Reid went through his archives and recovered eight* songs the pop icon recorded but never released from 1983 to 1999.
His aim with the album was to make the material sound contemporary while preserving the raw genius of Jackson, the singer and songwriter.
"Michael Jackson was the perfect artist, who spoke to all of us" says Reid. "He tapped us on the shoulder and said, 'Would you just do me one small favor and remind people I'm the greatest?' And we all said, yes."
