Queen To Release Unheard Freddie Mercury Tracks In New Album

Queen’s lead guitarist Brian May recently confirmed the band’s plans to release a new album by the end of the year that will contain previously unheard tracks sung by the band’s iconic and now deceased frontman Freddie Mercury. The album’s rumored title is Queen Forever.

DigitalSpy.com reports:

The unreleased songs date back to the 1980s and feature Mercury's vocals over recently recorded instrumental tracks, which will be merged together using ProTools.

May discussed what the album will sound like, explaining: "It is quite emotional. It is the big, big ballads and the big, big epic sound."

The Queen guitarist disclosed that he is restoring the songs himself along with bandmate Roger Taylor.

May has previously revealed that Mercury's unreleased material includes a 1983 collaboration with Michael Jackson… it is unclear if the song will appear on Queen Forever.

Mercury died at age 45 from bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS, just one day after he publicly announced he had the disease.

Queen will kick off their 17-date summer tour in Chicago on June 19; openly gay singer Adam Lambert will sing in Mercury’s place.

  2. Many years ago my apartment was burglarized. I had hundreds of CDs, but the only ones that were stolen were my Queen CDs. The power of Queen!

  3. Just watched a new short bio on youtube called Freddie Mercury Saved My Life by opera singer Alfie Boe. How did Mercury have all this talent with no vocal/music training whatsoever? Mind blowing stuff. Top legend of all legends.

  4. If you really want to see Mercury at the absolute pinnacle I think just watch the Queen Live Aid clip, particularly Radio Gaga. That was one of the greatest moments in musical history because Queen came to that global performance intent to slay the world live... and that is exactly what they did with Mercury in perfect form and a tweaked arrangement that would have resulted in a #1 hit if it had been the original album version.
