London, July 10 : Former "king of pop" Michael Jackson is collaborating with golden oldie boyband 'New Kids On The Block' to make a comeback.
There are reports that Jacko had a secret discussion with the band on their link-up at his home in Nevada last week.
"It's very exciting. It's one big party and everyone wants to join us," the Mirror quoted 38-year-old New Kids singer Donny Wahlberg as saying.
Jackson is trying to revive his music career following his acquittal three years ago of child abuse charges.
He was expected to release a new album this year to coincide with his 50th birthday.
However, a source says that the album will not be out until Jacko is satisfied with its quality.
"He has been in the studio for months. He wants to create an amazing album and won't release anything until he is totally satisfied," the source said.
"He's a musical genius and record bosses want to leave him to develop his magic. It will be down to him when it is released," the source added.
