Re: News and discussion about new MJ album : Xscape, May 13, 2014.

Is there any idea on which track they are contemplating on having as the first single?

Just two weeks ago I did not know what the next album could ever be.
I was wondering when but the most important question was – what attitude, with how much care is it going to be?! There was no any other more important question for me!!!

Now I have the answers… And the idea to invite some Fans from all around the world to the listening event and to ask for their opinion and for some help in "promotion", it was GREAT idea!!! Their reviews mean much more to me than reviews from journalists or critics or anyone else.

Thanks to them I can now just relax and be happy waiting for the release. I do not have to worry…
Just as much as I trusted Michael, now I put that much trust into MJFam. And that is how Michael’s legacy should go on. I’m very grateful that the Estate did the listening event for the fans.

SONY and Etsate seems to be very quiet...

Maybe the announcement comes out of the blue when noone expects it.

Now would be a good time, the sky is blue and I'm not expecting it:chillin:


The way mood of this thread goes up and down made me think of
seven stages of grief:
- Shock or Disbelief
- Denial
- Anger
- Bargaining
- Guilt
- Depression
- Acceptance and Hope

That goes with us too waiting for this album to drop.
We are now entered bargaining stage, ready to give up something in order to get something now:)

Re: News and discussion about new MJ album : Xscape, May 13, 2014.

Just checked amazon germany.
And there is Xscape now listed for release on 9th of may.
Typically new albums often get released on a friday here in germany.
With MICHAEL album it was the same, a friday & 3/4 days earlier as in the uk/us...

Also checked Media Markt & Saturn (2 biggest electronic markets/sellers in germany).
Both list the release of Xscape for 05/09/14.

Yup, New Zealand gets it on the 9th of May as well. We got Bad 25 a few days after USA and UK though.

To me, there is everything else but silence. I don't know on which planet you all are, but on planet earth there were listening sessions in London, Paris, Munich & New York City, which were all followed by media exposure & positive reviews by journalists. Then there was a listening session in LA with fan clubs joining from all over the world, again followed by wonderful reviews, postings & blogs from said fan club members.
To me silence is something different...

Just because YOU don't get what YOU expect at the time YOU expect, to the extent YOU expect don't spin the facts.

Enough with the I want this, i want that, i want more, i want it now, i want it in another way. It feels like bad behaving children sometimes in here.
Enough with the moaning & bitching!

SRY for the rant, but i can't believe what was written the last 2/3 days in this thread. We already have another conspiracy theory looming in this thread. Sony is using fan clubs to promote the album & leaves all fans in the dark on purpose. First single selection is being wrong, whole album will therefore fail & no more singles will be released - it's laughable really! Some should do a diligent reality check with themselves.

let me guess - my homeplanet is gentle and blue, I think it's called "Earth":unsure:

Announcement wise there's nothing since 31/03/14. Do you really consider those listening parties, reviews, etc. as official statements?

Re: News and discussion about new MJ album : Xscape, May 13, 2014.

Listening parties aren't official statements. They're being used as hype.

This is honestly the perfect way to promote this album. They're getting the knowledge out and having events to play the album for critics and fans, who have all mostly come back with majorly enthusiastic reviews. This is all before a track listing is even confirmed.

I'm pleased beyond belief.

No, of course they're no official statements.
But do you need a statement, when much better things are going on?
Which statements should be given? Every week a new one?
They will make a statement when they think the time is right for a new statement.
Full tracklist & more details on the songs will follow. We must let them decide when the time is, because they are in charge!

I'm also impatient & über-excited, but i can't blame anyone but me for my impatience.
They will do it right this time! We can relax & trust, this time everything will come together & be just fine.

Re: News and discussion about new MJ album : Xscape, May 13, 2014.


Don't know how reliable this site is. But from what the fan club members brought to the table from the session in LA, it's pretty safe to say that this is the track list...

And it's a great track list, IMO.

I know six of the songs & from the state i know them, 5 of them are hit's. By the reviews even the 6th song, LNFSG is a hit. Chicago seems to be THE hit.
So we have an album full of KILLER tracks.

I can't wait till i blast it in full through my house & my car...

Just one proper official announcement/ press release with the tracklist as well as short details on the songs would be usefull - not only to the fans.

There're some tabloids out there whose reviews are nonsense. e.g. DYKWYCA is falsely linked with the 1993 case. A non fan could be easily fooled by these kind of misinformation. And if there's no official information to check for its confirmation or denial, he/she might think the song is about little boys:doh:

Re: News and discussion about new MJ album : Xscape, May 13, 2014.

Ive heard NOTHING about this released until I looked it up. It's kind of sad actually, this is not like the ''Michael'' at all. They need more promotion world wide.

What should they promote NOW that nothing is released yet?

Those who were at the listening parties said that there will be huge promotion and this is the storm before the calm.

Re: News and discussion about new MJ album : Xscape, May 13, 2014.

To me, this excitement, anticipation, controversy etc is EXACTLY like the good old days. The way Michael would have done it word for word...

The fact is, the album was announced only 6 weeks before release and nobody here has the first idea about the level of publicity that is planned.

Its frustrating to wait yes, but also quite exciting! How you can all judge Sony and the Estate before they have even begun is beyond belief!

Everybody... Hold on tight!

More or less than 48?

:lol:

I love how you're all hassling him for details. Personally, whatever the single is, whenever it is released, I can't wait to hear it :) I'm impatient, too, but the old saying is true: good things come to those who wait ;)
