Michael Jackson -- 'Off the Wall' Remaster In the Works

12/13/2010 8:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the Michael Jackson/Sony deal tell TMZ ... among the 10 albums in the works is a remaster of "Off the Wall" -- with the help of none other than Quincy Jones.

Michael Jackson Off the Wall
We're told the plan is for Quincy to take charge of the project, which will include some never-before-heard outtakes.

Another album will feature the soundtrack to the upcoming Jackson-themed Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas.

There are reports circulating that Sony will release 10 original albums, but that's not true. In addition to the release of "MICHAEL" on Tuesday, we're told there will be at least one other album with original songs and at most two.

Glad to hear this. "Off the Wall" was a MUCH better album than "Thriller."

"Thriller" just received more hype, but the tracks on "Off the Wall" are indeed masterpieces. Looking forward to hearing the remastered version of my favorite MJ album.

In France, Sony's chairman - Mr. Nicolas Renault - said about "Keep Your Head Up", "Breaking News" and "Monster" :
"You know, the estate of Michael Jackson did not hide the intervention of another singer (James Gate) on these three songs."

Album "thriller" is better than "off the wall". Michael composed 4 songs on "thriller" album. ("off the wall" only 3 songs)

TMZ, you confuse me...
First you say "among the 10 albums in the works"
and then you say -

"There are reports circulating that Sony will release 10 original albums, but that's not true. In addition to the release of "MICHAEL" on Tuesday, we're told there will be at least one other album with original songs and at most two."

WTF??? Which one is it, 2 albums or 10 albums??

MJ fans from a source at Sony have heard that there will be 10 albums in ALL released, but 4 albums will be reissued collections, and 6 of the albums will be BRAND NEW material.
That's what's up.

With all due respect, how many more remasterings do we need of MJ's albums? They've already been remastered -- pretty recently, if I recall. 'Cuz I have them.

Reruns..reruns...reruns. So many people making so much dough from these tired albums. Poor MJ, sorry there are so many people out to get rich off the dead guy. Will this ever stop.

Your comment is funny. Yeah, I've got all the remastered copies, but hey, do it again. Technology improves every day. More for my collection. Woo Hoo. Can't wait.
