Featuring nine unreleased songs. 

Michael Jackson has a new album, and one lucky bidder could add these songs to their music library. The album, featuring nine unreleased songs by the King of Pop, is up for auction from July 19-28.

The New York-based auction house Gotta Have Rock and Roll is overseeing the sale of the album. They acquired the album from an acquaintance of Jackson's who wished to keep his name confidential. Though, the auction house did reveal that this individual was "the personal friend and personal assistant to Michael whose family was very close to Michael for many years, traveling all over the world with him."

The album, designed to look like a blank cd with the word "Bible" written across it," consists of 12 tracks. Versions of three of the songs, "Monster," "Breaking News" and "Keep Your Head Up" were featured on 2010's Michael. The other nine tracks, "Stay," "Everything's Just Fine," "Black Widow," "Burn Tonight," "All I Need," "Water," "Let Me Fall in Love," "Ready to Win" and "Soldier Boy" are available for the first time. All tracks are master quality.

The auction house has set the starting bid at $50k, and they believe the album could sell for as high as $1 million. However, the winning bidder will not be able to profit from Jackson's music because rights to the music are not being sold in the auction.

Other Jackson personal items up for sale include clothes, hand-drawn self-portraits by the artist, a "Best Daddy in the World" Oscar from his children, and his "personally owned teddy bear."

Items owned by Kurt Cobain, The Rolling Stones, U2, Madonna and Beyonce are also up for auction.
