(CNN) — A song Michael Jackson recorded 31 years ago has been released as the first single from the upcoming Xscape album.

Jackson wrote, recorded and produced “Love Never Felt So Good” with Paul Anka in 1983.

According to an Epic Records news release, it has been “contemporized” by Anka and Jackson estate co-executor John McClain.

The track, featuring Justin Timberlake, debuted during the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Thursday night.

Epic announced in March that eight previously unheard Jackson songs, originally recorded between 1983 and 1999, will be released on the new album.

The album will be released May 13.
