Timbaland’s extensive interview with Revolt TV has already revealed some pretty interesting information, like how Nas, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake recorded a song together, but the latest portion might just be the most exciting. Why? Because the super producer revealed that he’s working on a new posthumous Michael Jackson album.

Timbo explaied that Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid approached him with a “big” idea of producing an upcoming MJ project — an opportunity which he jumped at, to say the least. Just like 2010’s Michael, the as-yet-untitled LP will feature unreleased vocals from the King of Pop. The first single will be titled “Chicago” and “sounds like today,” according to Timbo.

He also promised that he’ll “have it done by this year,” so could a release date be sooner than later? Coincidentally, today would have been MJ’s 55th birthday. R.I.P. to the King of Pop.
