XSCAPE: NEW MICHAEL JACKSON ALBUM
It was announced today that on May 13th Epic Records, in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release XSCAPE, an album of new music by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. XSCAPE is executive produced by Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid. After mining by the Estate of Jackson’s archives, Reid was granted unlimited access to the treasures spanning four decades of material on which Jackson had completed his vocals. Reid then teamed up top producers to “contemporize” the songs while retaining Jackson’s essence and integrity, creating the best music you’ve never heard. The list of producers include global hitmakers Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain.
The new album will feature eight brand new recordings. A Deluxe Edition of XSCAPE will include a selection of the recordings in their original form. Both the standard and Deluxe Edition’s are available April 1st for pre-order on iTunes and elsewhere.
The title of this album honors Michael’s album naming process. He always chose a song from the album to name his projects and, beginning with THRILLER, used only one word titles, each with an edgy quality to them. This is true of the new project.
John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson said, “Michael was always on the cutting edge and was constantly reaching out to new producers, looking for new sounds. He was always relevant and current. These tracks, in many ways, capture that spirit. We thank L.A. Reid for his vision.”

We would like to wish our revolutionary ancestor Huey P. Newton a Happy Birthday, who was born on February 17., 1942. He was a powerful warrior in the struggle against racism, capitalism, and imperialism during the 1960s and 1970s.

Without his leadership in creating and developing the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, many of us would not have the opportunities we have today, such as the Women Infant and Children (WIC) program, free school breakfast, Black Studies, and many more contributions for oppressed people to rise up and finally control our society for the advancement of our people and the world.

Watch this video of a huge rally of more than 5,000 people on his birthday, February 17, 1968, organized by Bobby Seale and the Black Panther Party for Self Defense to support the movement to Free Huey from prison.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUEY P. NEWTON!
