Unreleased Michael Jackson album based on Robert Burns’ poetry surfaces…wait…what?

An unreleased Michael Jackson album based on the work of Scottish poet Robert Burns has surfaced.

The collection, which sees the Scotland Bard’s poems transformed into show tunes, was first revealed four years ago by former I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here star David Gest but it never saw the light of day.

The songs were originally intended to be part of a musical, directed by Gene Kelly and produced by actor Anthony Perkins, but the death of both men meant it was never staged. Now, Gest claims he handed the unreleased album over to the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayrshire during a recent visit to Scotland.
