NEW YORK (AP) - When Michael Jackson's record label released his first posthumous album in a year after his 2009 death, producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins was asked to work on the project.

He declined.

Years later, the man who worked heavily on Jackson's 2001 comeback album "Invincible," says he's finally comfortable again producing the King of Pop's music.

He produced the title track from the upcoming album, "Xscape," out May 13.

Says Jerkins: "I had a personal relationship with Michael, (so) it was about, ...'What would he want it to sound like now?'"

"Xscape" was executive produced by Timbaland and includes songs Jackson recorded in the 1980s and 1990s. Some of the tracks are taken from early recording sessions for successful albums such as "Bad" and "Dangerous."
