Could there be another new Queen release on the way with Freddie Mercury on vocals?
Possibly, according to guitarist Brian May!
Following the promise of a set of never-before-heard Freddie Mercury/Michael Jackson duets, May has revealed to Mojo Magazine (via The Guardian) that he and his Queen bandmates have discovered even more unused material featuring the iconic voice of their late frontman.
“There's more in there than we thought, in the Queen source archive,” May explained to Mojo. “I'm a little nervous of saying there's an album there, but there's certainly a few tracks ...We've found some Freddie vocals, some demos.”
May hinted at more or less the same thing during a September chat with iHeartRadio, during which he stated, “We thought we’d exhausted everything that was around and could be worked on but since then a number of things have come to light from various sources that we’d just plain forgotten about, including stuff with Freddie and Michael Jackson and there’s quite a few other things.”
In the iHeart interview, with guitarist also compared such a release to Queen’s 1995 album, Made In Heaven, in which the band used vocal parts that Mercury had recorded before his death in 1991, combined with newly recorded parts from May, John Deacon (bass) and Roger Taylor (drums).
Meanwhile, Roger Taylor told Classic Rock Magazine last month that the Mercury/Jackson duets were completed and the band was just waiting for the “go-ahead” to release them.
