Back in July Queen drummer Roger Taylor confirmed that May was working on several unfinished songs that Mercury had recorded with Michael Jackson. May was reported to have said at the time that there would be “something for folks to hear” in two months’ time.
But whilst those songs haven’t yet emerged, May has recently said when speaking with Mojo magazine, “”There’s more in there than we thought, in the Queen source archive. I’m a little nervous of saying there’s an album there, but there’s certainly a few tracks… We’ve found some Freddie vocals, some demos.”
Of the material recorded with Jackson, Taylor told Classic Rock Magazine, “”They’ve been hanging around for years and years and Michael’s estate haven’t really been able to make their mind up about what to do with them. So we suggested we finish them and see. They’re pretty good – one of them is great.”
Official release dates for any of the material have yet to be announced.
