Michael Jackson’s family have revealed there could be more music to come from the late singer in the future.

Jackon’s brother Tito, a former member of The Jackson 5, revealed the singer “left a few things behind” and said “there is more music to release” in a recent interview with British newspaper The Sun.

“It would be so pleasing to be on a record with Michael once again. Anything that would work we would be willing to give a try and see what happens,” he said.

“It’s beyond our control but they always try and get our participation and we’re always happy to offer.”

The comment was made in reference to Sony, which renewed its partnership with the Michael Jackson estate for the rights to the artist’s catalogue in 2017 for $750 million.

“It’s definitely a brilliant idea. We’re thinking about doing something, so hopefully that will come to fruition,” Tito said.

It would not be the first time posthumous music from Michael Jackson has been released. Since his death in 2009, two albums – 2010’s Michael and 2014’s Xscape ­­­– have been released. His vocals have also appeared on tracks by the likes of Lenny Kravitz and Drake.

Tito also revealed that plans for The Jacksons’s first new studio release since 1989 are in motion, although he did not reveal any further details. The band were in the UK to perform at Happy Days festival over the bank holiday weekend.
