There is more previously unheard material to come from Michael Jackson after the release of his posthumous 'Michael' album, one of his producers has confirmed.

Teddy Riley oversaw three songs on the album, which will be released on Monday (December 13). He said he was already signed up to work on the material.

"I look forward to doing the next one and I'm glad I'm on board," he told BBC Newsbeat.

The release of the 'Michael' album has been marred in controversy. will.i.am, one of Jackson’s former collaborators, slammed Sony Records for releasing the album, calling the release "disrespectful".

In addition, several members of Jackson's family have disputed the authenticity of his vocals on the record. Riley has dismissed the accusations, saying, "No-one could ever duplicate Michael."

Riley said he thinks the album would have Jackson's blessing. "It's what he would have expected us to do," he said. "If he was here he would have pushed us even more. It's an incredible record."

The album also features contributions from Dave Grohl, Akon, 50 Cent and Lenny Kravitz. It has already leaked on the internet.
