    Branca has said multiple times this year there is no new unreleased songs coming in the near future.

    I don't know how many times it has to be stated that Branca said there will be no new releases any time soon. For the millionth time.

    I think after everyone got excited it was stated that it was an old tweet. I am just going to say though that asking the question isn't a sin and sometimes people ask questions on here and some people answer with arsey replies. There is just no need.

    Apparently there is no music available with enough quality or finalisation to make a whole album. They literally have no plans to release new music anytime soon. Brands said they would possibly release HWT on DVD as that was the only concert with enough multi angle shots (I doubt that) and they will make Ghosts 3D next year.

    But NO NEW MUSIC!
    With the L.O.V.E

    So that is it then? We have heard everything there is left to hear? There was a rumour back in July 2009 that there was enough material for 9 albums? I guess this wasn't true. It is so sad to think we have come to the end of the line. I don't care about multi angle shots. I just want to see all tours in better quality than we currently have available. I want what there is. I just miss him so much

    Of course there is more music available for more albums.

    We aren't at the end of the line. There's a lot more still to be heard.

    The recent comment that there "isn't much material left to a certain standard" is too vague to interpret fully. My takeaway from it is that the Estate is running out of finished songs (i.e., tracks that are completed vocally and musically), which is completely plausible given Michael's work ethic. Practically every song on Michael and Xscape were demos in their final Michael-approved mixes, barring "Xscape" and perhaps "Blue Gangsta".

    But to suggest that the well is running dry is simply absurd. There are several dozen songs that are vocally complete/near-complete that could be released commercially. My last count comes to 27 titles that are unleaked and confirmed to be at least 80% finished, as well as 11 others that have leaked over the years but are in a releasable state. That isn't even taking into consideration the vast number of titles (well over 100) that we know little to nothing about, as well as the songs we've yet to learn exist.

    There is plenty left, no doubt about that.

    An excerpt from Michael's "Killer Thriller" speech:

    So... we can't let them get away with what they're trying to do, because now I'm a free agent. I just owe $ony one more album, it's just a box set, really, with two new songs which I've written ages ago. Because for every album that I record, I write like, literally, I'm telling you the truth, I write.... I write at least 120 songs every album I do, so... I can do the box set, just giving them any two songs.

    Granted, he could have been exaggerating just a bit, and maybe a lot of the songs weren't finished, but I truly think there is more. Unless, perhaps, they've become lost, missing, stolen over the years.

    I think there are more, but maybe not so much in the vault. I'm not as knowledgable as to whats in there and whats not, but I also think people who worked closely with him may have material the estate and sony don't have or as mentioned above, aren't complete. Or, who knows, they don't have the vision as to where to take the material they do have. I don't mind a re-mix or two, but I hope they don't start relying heavily on them.

    The unreleased songs that have been leaked, that we've all been listening to for years could be offically released. Heck, I'd even like to hear more of his raw demo's. I'm there are moments of pure gold on some of those.

    I'm sure songs such as Crack Kills, Chicago 1945, Buffalo Bill, Men In Black, Innocent Man, Don't Be Messin Round, I Have This Dream, Can't Get My Weight Off You are complete or close to competition so they are good enough to be released on an album.

    I agree I think there is much more and also plausibility to the * stolen over the years * suggestion. since (giving an example) sonny had a whole computer of tracks stolen , it can happen to an artist unfortunately and it might have happened to m too somewhere along the line. especially, if the new method of documenting things were kept on file/ computers.
    Although, i can see m with a locked vault and the key suddenly went *missing * and no one knows where it is tho :lol:

    @AlwaysThere:
    Can you give us the titles of the complete/near complete tracks?
