These are the stories about the real Michael Jackson...
The musical genius at work.
As told by the songwriters, producers, musicians, and technicians who worked intimately with him in the studio, and featuring a touching foreword written by his longtime engineer Matt Forger, Xscape Origins: The Songs and Stories Michael Jackson Left Behind takes you inside the recording studio, delivering captivating fly-on-the-wall insights into the creative process of the greatest artistic visionary the world has ever known.
For the first time—featuring exclusive never-before told stories—Damien Shields puts all the pieces of the puzzle together to reveal how the King of Pop and his collaborators conceived and developed the original versions of:
"The process for Michael never followed a pattern or formula. Each song was its own special case of exploring an idea, a melody, a groove, a story to tell, or an emotion to communicate. Sometimes he worked alone and allowed 'the song to write itself,' as he often explained, while other times it was a collaborative effort. Sometimes he found an existing song that inspired him, put his performance on it, and made it his own. Regardless of how the process unfolded, the results were always amazing.
Damien Shields has taken on the task of researching some of these songs and the stories behind their creation, and for that I thank him. There are so many lessons to learn from a creative genius like Michael. Just as Michael said, 'Study the greats and become greater,' we are now left to study how he, a poor child from a Midwestern American town, rose to be the most popular entertainer on the planet. These stories are a detailed examination of how some of the songs—unreleased in his lifetime—came into existence."
