Justin Timberlake used Instagram today to reveal the news that he will be featured on a track from Michael Jackson's posthumous album, Xscape, due out May 13. JT posted the single artwork for "Love Never Felt So Good," which reads at the bottom: "Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake." Timbaland produced the new album, while Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon and John McClain also worked on certain tracks.

Miley Cyrus' symptoms from a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics have returned, and doctors will not allow her to travel. This means Miley is postponing two more concert dates: May 2 in Amsterdam and May 4 in Antwerp, Belgium. Those two dates have been pushed back to June. The singer already was forced to postpone her U.S. tour until August after treatment for her sinus infection went awry. On the bright side, her Bangerz album has now crossed the 1 million sales mark, giving Miley her sixth album to reach the Platinum sales milestone.

Rock trio Seether will return with their sixth studio album, Isolate And Medicate, on July 1 via The Bicycle Music Company/Concord Music Group. The band has again teamed with producer Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam). The album's first single, "Words As Weapons," premieres today and is available for free download on the band's website:
www.Seether.com.

Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace will join the ranks of artists with reality shows. The online series, which will air via AOL, will tell the story of Grace's transition from male to female after coming out as transgender in 2011. The premiere date and the number of episodes have yet to be announced, though a trailer for the show, titled "So Much More," can be seen online.

Jägermeister has announced its Ultimate Summer of Music initiative, which will find the liqueur brand sponsoring three separate acts on three nationwide tours headlined by Fall Out Boy, Eli Young Band, and Paul Oakenfold. Jägermeister's Ultimate Summer of Music kicks off on May 16th and includes over 30 concerts through September.
