Epic Records, in conjunction with Jackson's estate, released a statement today detailing the project, reports the Huffington Post.

"After mining by the Estate of Jackson's archives, L.A. 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," read the statement.
