A new Michael Jackson album featuring previously-unreleased songs is set to be released in November.

The as-yet-untitled posthumous LP is set to feature 10 songs from sessions recorded during his peak in the 80s right up to his recording sessions with Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am in 2006.

Before his death on June 25, 2009, Jackson left hard drives filled with unheard music, reports Rolling Stone. Jackson's manager Frank DiLeo claimed that the singer's vaults contains more than 100 completed and unreleased songs, including collaborations with Akon and Ne-Yo.

"There are a couple of songs we recorded for the 'Bad' album that we had to cut that are just sensational," DiLeo said.

Last year, a pair of previously-unreleased songs, 'Another Day' and 'A Place With No Name', surfaced. Rodney Jerkins, who co-produced Jackson's 2001 album 'Invincible', revealed that he was working on the collection.

The album will be the first in a 10-album, seven-year deal the Jackson estate agreed with Sony BMG in March 2010.
