It’s been over 20 years since singer Freddie Mercury died and fans across the world mourned that his voice was silenced forever. Those fans will now be thrilled to learn that the Queen is planing on releasing some unreleased tracks that include Mercury’s vocals. Guitarist Brian May has stated that the band plans on putting out a new Queen compilation set that should be available at the end of this year.
“It’s probably called Queen Forever, and it’s a compilation – but it will have this new material, which nobody in the world has ever heard. I think people will really enjoy it.” Some of the tracks were recorded back in the 1980s and “It’s quite emotional. It’s the big, big ballads and the big epic sound.”
“We had to start from scratch because we only had scraps. But I can sit there and make it happen with modern technology – you can do almost anything with Pro Tools.”
No word yet on an official release date for the album or how many new tracks will be released. It has been said however that the songs will feature duets with David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Andy Gibb, and Michael Jackson.
What do you guys think? Who wants to hear some new Queen songs?
