Queen were originally founded by Brian May, Roger Taylor and Freddie Mercury. The band are of course known for hits such as “We Will Rock You” and “Bohemian Rhapsody”. 

“a gem”

Describing the track as a “gem”, Roger Taylor confirmed that it will arrive in September. He also revealed that it was originally recorded during the band’s Miracle sessions of the 1980s.

“We did find a little gem from Freddie that we’d kind of forgotten about”, Taylor said. “It’s wonderful. Actually, it was a real discovery. It’s from the Miracle sessions (in the late 1980s), and I think it’s going to be out in September”. 

Guitarist Brian May also spoke of how the “lost” single came about, hailing it as a “very passionate peace”.

“We looked at it many times and thought, ‘Oh no, we can’t really rescue that'”, he said.

“But in fact, we went in there again and our wonderful engineering team went, ‘OK, we can do this and this’. It’s like kind of stitching bits together”. 

“But it’s beautiful. It’s touching”, he added.
