Speaking with the BBC Radio Wales on May 23rd, Queen guitarist Brian May revealed the band would be releasing a new collection of music later this year that will include previously unreleased songs sung by Freddie Mercury.
“We found a few more tracks with Freddie singing and all of us playing and they are quite beautiful,” May said, speaking with radio host Wynne Evans. “It is a compilation but will have this material that nobody in the world has ever heard. I think people will really enjoy it.”
May said the album’s title will most likely be Queen Forever and should see release towards the end of the year.
“Most of it comes from the ’80s when we were in full flight,” May continued. “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 have 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.”
