New Queen Album to Feature Unreleased Recordings from Freddie Mercury + Michael Jackson Collaboration

This will, this will rock you. In November, Queen will release a new album – Queen Forever – and on it will be three previously unreleased tracks featuring the late Freddie Mercury, including a collaboration between Queen and Michael Jackson. 

“We’ve got some great new tracks that haven’t been heard and there’s an interesting selection of older stuff,” said Queen’s Roger Taylor, who assembled the album alongside Brian May, both founding members of the legendary English band.

According to a news release announcing the project, “The tracks include a long anticipated song from Queen and Michael Jackson, ‘There Must Be More to Life Than This,’ a previously unfinished Mercury-Queen track ‘Let Me In Your Heart Again’ originating from the band’s The Works album recording sessions, and a new stripped-down ballad version of Mercury’s first solo hit, his Giorgio Moroder collaboration, ‘Love Kills.'”

Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor, Brian May and John Deacon formed the group in 1970. Queen would go on to record a number of songs that would become classics in the rock genre, including ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ ‘Another One Bites the Dust,’ ‘We Are the Champions,’ ‘We Will Rock You,’ and others. Mercury passed away in 1991.

The news release also provided detail on the Queen/Jackson collaboration:

The Queen and Michael Jackson duet, “There Must Be More to Life Than This,” began as a song written by Mercury during sessions for Queen’s 1981 album, Hot Space. The band recorded a backing track, but the song was never completed. Mercury visited Michael Jackson at his home studio in Los Angeles where he recorded Jackson singing the song for an unfinished version. Queen revived the track during sessions for 1984’s The Works, but again it was not finished. A year later, Freddie’s own version of the song surfaced on his debut solo album, 1985’s Mr. Bad Guy. This new production of the powerful ballad fuses Queen’s original backing track and Mercury and Jackson’s distinctive vocals, and has been produced and remixed by celebrated Madonna/Robbie Williams producer William Orbit.”

Queen Forever will go on sale November 11, and will be available both as a 20-track single CD and as an extended 36-track, two-CD set.
