Only 2 tracks are confirmed.... you cant trust Wikipedia in this case.
But its likely that many of the songs in your post will be included when final tracklist are released.

I guess you're correct about Wikipedia not being 100% accurate because now it says the following "confirmed" tracks:

1."Xscape"
2."A Place with No Name"
3."Do You Know Where Your Children Are"
4."Slave to the Rhythm"
5."Chicago (She Was Loving Me)"
6."Blue Gangsta"
7."Love Never Felt So Good"

Track5 are most likely two songs despite some confusion on the net regarding this.
There was a closed hearing for some journalists in London a few days ago and they said Chicago and She was loving me are 2 different songs.

Update:
More and more fans actually says that it could mean that Chicago and She was loving me are in fact the same song.
This also mean that the journalists that was invited to hear the album only heard 7 songs not 8......so what will the 8th track be?

Thanks. I will move it to checkout now! This will should be very insightful - some I've had for ages (I had quite a few rarities on cassette back in the day), but av few seem to be eye-openers.

Pretty good album, not in the league of those when he was alive, but still pretty good.

Did Timberlake actually record with Jackson, or they dubbed them in together posthumously?

Re: Michael Jackson,new CD may 13th

No he got involved after the producer Timberlake played him the tracks.

I have played this release a lot since last friday and I have very mixed feelings about it.
Main reason is that while most of the songs have leaked online years ago the mixes are much better compared to the ones on this release.....even comparing with original versions of the songs.
I like "Love Never Felt So Good" while on the other hand I really hate the "Do You Know Where Your Children Are" mixes.
The old leaked version is 100% better than the two versions on this release.

I think that younger MJ fans will .....in many cases.....enjoy the new overdubs/mixes more than the older ones that were fans when
Michael released his best albums.....Thriller,Bad&Dangerous.

Last week I purchased both the standard and the deluxe version of "XSCAPE" (standard for the car, deluxe to listen to at home).

I gotta admit I love the album. It's miles better than "Michael" (2010) and very good in its own right.

I've been listening to it almost non-stop for the last couple of days and my favorite tracks have got to be "Chicago," "A Place With No Name" (a jeep replaced a horse), and "Slave To The Rhythm."
