Timbaland is bringing the "King of Pop" back to life on record with his next project. 

In an interview with Sean "Diddy" Combs' newly-launched Revolt TV, the hit-making producer revealed that his next project will find him teaming up with the late Michael Jackson. 

Timbaland explains that he got involved with the project after Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid came to his house to tell him he wanted to do "something big." 

While few details are known about the project, Timbaland did say the first single will be a song called "Chicago."  He adds that he's going to "set it up right."  

This Thursday, August 29th will mark what would have been Michael Jackson's 55th birthday.
