Whenever new music from Michael Jackson surfaces, you'll hear people things such as, "but he died five years ago, how is this new?" Surely the better question to ask is whether or not he'd want this material to be released?

Last night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, a new track from his forthcoming posthumous album XSCAPE was released. 'Love Never Felt So Good' was originally recorded by Jackson and Paul Anka in 1983, but today we get to hear a slightly updated version: "the contemporized recording is a magic combination of the new and the original production that retains the track’s analog, early 80s feel, while also sounding right at home with the disco-soul inflected music of today."

It's not unheard of for an artist to wait until the time is right before releasing a song (even if it's good) - but you also have to consider that artists - especially Michael Jackson back in the '80s - would've recorded every idea they had. Sure, 'Love Never Felt So Good' is nice enough, but it's certainly not a hit single, even when the alternate version features Michael Jackson 2.0, Justin Timberlake.

You can listen over at iTunes Radio, or via the video player below (which features some impressive dancing from Usher).

XSCAPE is released on May 12th in the UK (May 27th in the States via Epic Records).
