The title track from Michael Jackson's posthumous album 'Xscape' is streaming online. Scroll down to listen now.

The track appears on the upcoming album 'Xscape' which will be released on May 12 and features eight unreleased songs worked on by contemporary artists and producers.

'Xscape' is the latest track to emerge from the album and follows the Timbaland-produced 'Chicago', which was originally titled 'She Was Lovin' Me' when Jackson first recorded it in 1999, and it was meant to appear on his 2001 album 'Invincible' but didn't make the cut.

Last month, another track from the album 'Love Never Felt So Good' was released. It was written by Paul Anika and originally recorded by Jackson in 1983.

It was previously reported that another song on 'XSCAPE' tells the story of an abused 12-year-old who runs away from home and turns to prostitution. The lyrics reportedly include the lines: "She wrote that she is tired of stepdaddy using her/Saying that he’ll buy her things, while sexually abusing her."

The tracklist for 'XSCAPE' is as follows:

'Love Never Felt So Good'
'Chicago'
'Loving You'
'A Place With No Name'
'Slave To The Rhythm'
'Do You Know Where Your Children Are'
'Blue Gangsta'
'Xscape'
