Two years after his death, the King of Pop continues to surprise his fans with a posthumous album.
The announcement was made Monday by representatives of Epic Records label.
While the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray is in full swing in Los Angeles, the entertainment industry is hyped by the upcoming release of the second posthumous MJ album – Immortal.
Kevin Antunes, the music designer who has been reworking Jackson ’s original recordings, said in a statement that the new album “was built with love and respect for Michael’s music, his family, and his millions of fans around the world.”
Unlike Michael, the Immortal album won’t contain previously unreleased tracks, as it’s actually a compilation of the singer’s biggest hits.
Immortal is actually the soundtrack for the new Cirque du Soleil show, The Immortal World Tour, which debuted on Sunday. The album features an alternative version of the Jackson 5 hit, ABC, as well as a series of mashups and remixes.
Immortal will be available starting November 21 in the form of an album containing 15 tracks and a double-CD deluxe edition that includes 22 pieces.
2010′s Michael, the first posthumous album by Michael Jackson, sold over three million copies worldwide in the first week of release in December 2010.
