New Freddie Mercury and Queen Album
Brian May says Queen is considering releasing a full album featuring unreleased tracks made with Freddie Mercury. As reported by Vintage Vinyl News, the Queen guitarist made the revelation during an interview with iHeart Radio, during the annual “Freddie For A Day” event in London.
"We thought we'd exhausted everything that was around and could be worked on,” said May, “but since then a number of things have come to light from various sources that we'd just plain forgotten about, including the stuff with Freddie and Michael Jackson. Just a couple of weeks ago, we thought: Maybe we shouldn't be just working on bits and pieces? Maybe we should be heading towards an album? It just might be."
Queen’s 1995 album, Made in Heaven, was the band’s last record to feature Mercury, who died in 1991. The group completed the project using vocals and keyboard parts that Mercury had recorded prior to his death. Earlier this summer, May confirmed that three duets Mercury recorded with Michael Jackson in 1983 will be released this fall.
