Will We Soon Hear An Unreleased Queen Track?



Queen guitarist Brian May has apparently been doing more than just drinking tea to celebrate his recent cancer-free diagnosis.

May reports via his official blog that "some Queen magic is happening" -- specifically an unreleased track from the 80s that he's unearthed from the group's vaults.

May writes that, “It's annoying to be so secretive, but I guess I have to, for now. What I can say is the track we dusted off today has the four of us, Freddie, John, Roger and myself, playing together on a track we'd forgotten about that was never finished. It sounds so fresh, now all carefully transferred into the ProTools environment but sounding exactly like it did straight off the 24-track tape it was recorded on over 30 years ago. I got quite emotional hearing some of it...some rough takes, some discussion and banter, and then a really good take and some overdubs, and's crying to finally be brought into the world."

May has previously acknowledged that he's been working on recordings Freddie Mercury made with Michael Jackson, but he's not yet revealed how the Queen camp plans to release any of this archival material.
