A collection of unreleased Michael Jackson songs might end up in the most unlikely of places - a Scottish museum. A decade ago Michael Jackson and David Gest recorded compositions based on the poetry of Robert Burns, according to The Guardian.

The songs, which have never seen the light of day, were overlooked when Jackson's estate searched for unreleased material to release posthumously and now David Gest is said to have agreed to donate the material to Robert Burns Birthplace Museum.

Michael Jackson was a huge fan of Burns' poetry, said Gest. "We took about eight or 10 of Burns' poems and put them to contemporary music, such as 'A Red Red Rose', 'Ae Fond Kiss' and the story of 'Tam O'Shanter'", he continued.

The songs are rumoured to have been recorded in the late 1980's.
