Michael Jackson Estate: Eight More Albums Are Possible

We could be hearing new music from Michael Jackson for many years to come according to a new Rolling Stone report.

According to the trusted publication, Jackson's estate has enough unreleased music to release roughly eight albums.

"Michael Jackson's estate managed to bring the late star back to life, sort of, with an unnerving onstage pseudo-hologram at May 18th's Billboard Music Awards – and that's just the beginning of its ambitious plans for his career, which could include as many as eight more albums culled from outtakes and repackaged material," Rolling Stone reports.

Following the release of "Xscape," which features a well charting single with Justin Timberlake, sources say Jackson put many songs on the shelf year's ago and it's just a matter of going through and finding hidden gems.

"It was frequent that Michael would record songs and put them on the shelf," Matt Forger, his longtime engineer, shared with Rolling Stone in the latest issue, which is available June 19.

"After Jackson's death, Tommy Mottola, Sony Music's former CEO, suggested the singer worked up 20 to 30 songs for each album; Epic's Seviour estimates "tens and twenties" are still in the vault," reports Rolling Stone.

It's unclear when the next album will be released.
