Michael Jackson has been tipped to follow in the footsteps of electric guitar legend Jimi Hendrix with a string of posthumous releases.

Hendrix's sister Janie recently revealed that there is still enough unreleased music in the vaults to ensure to ensure a steady stream of new product for the next decade.

This is despite the fact that the Fender Stratocaster player died in 1970 and enjoyed a relatively brief recording career, releasing three studio albums during his lifetime.

Earlier this week, a previously unheard Michael Jackson track - the first to be unveiled since his death in June - was made public ahead of its release as a single.

BBC News believes the song, entitled This Is It, will be the "tip of the iceberg of posthumous releases".

"Jackson will join a long list of artists for whom death has not been a barrier to releasing new music," it commented.

The BBC added that Jackson's estate have made no secret of the fact that they wish to exploit the renewed interest in the star's music.
