The standard and deluxe edition are available for pre-order now and at retailers on May 13 in the US.
Fans will be able to listen to the song in its entirety tomorrow when it gets its radio world premiere on iHeart stations across the country.



"Love Never Felt So Good" was written and originally recorded and produced by Michael Jackson and Paul Anka in 1983, around the time they recorded "This Is It." Produced by John McClain, co-executor of the Estate of Michael Jackson, the contemporized recording is a magic combination of the new and the original production that retains the track's analog, early 80s feel, while also sounding right at home with the disco-soul inflected music of today. USA Today wrote, 'old school snap and tingle with warm leaping strings that recall the melodic and rhythmic punch of Jackson's work with Quincy Jones."

Executive produced by Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid, XSCAPE features music which the world will be hearing for the very first time. Reid curated the final list of recordings to deliver to the producers, who retooled the production to add a fresh, contemporary sound that retains Jackson's essence and integrity. It's a process Reid calls "contemporizing." The album's lead producer, Timbaland was one of a handful of producers Reid believed had the gravitas, depth and range to creatively engage with Jackson's work. Additional producers include global hitmakers Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon and John McClain.

XSCAPE is a long awaited collection of exciting new music that will thrill the legions of fans of one of the world's most revered and best-selling artists, as well as attract a whole new generation discovering his artistry for the first time.
