Michael Jackson is set to release a new studio album in 2008, featuring collaborations with Kanye West and Black Eyed PeasWill.I.Am.

Jackson revealed the details to Ebony magazine, and went on to explain that he did not plan to continue making music in his later years.

“[I won’t keep making music] the way James Brown or Jackie Wilson did, where they just killed themselves,” he said. “I wish James Brown could have slowed down and been more relaxed and enjoyed his hard work.”
