Brian May Reveals Details About Queen’s New Album

LAS VEGAS, NV - SEPTEMBER 20: Guitarist Brian May of Queen performs during the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 20, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
guitarist Brian May has revealed some details about the group's planned next album.

Speaking to BBC Wales Radio, May detailed a collection of songs from the vaults, which he said will "probably" be titled "Queen Forever." Detailing the set, May said that, "We found a few more tracks with Freddie singing and all of us playing and they are quite beautiful. People will be hearing this work towards the end of the year. We are going to put out an album...It is a compilation but will have this material that nobody in the world has ever heard. I think people will enjoy it."

May said most of the material dates back to the 80s "when we were in full flight. It is quite emotional. It is the big, big ballads and the big, big epic sound. It wouldn't have been if we hadn't done this restoration job. We had to start from scratch because we only had scraps. But knowing how it would have happened if we had finished it, I can sit there and make it happen with modern technology."

May and drummer Roger Taylor hope to finish up the album before Queen hits the road with former "American Idol" finalist Adam Lambert on June 19 in Chicago.
