Brian May has confirmed that Queen will release a new album featuring vocals by Freddie Mercury before the year is out.

The guitarist has said that the album is likely to be titled Queen Forever, and that Mercury’s vocals date back to recordings made during the 1980’s. May and Queen drummer Roger Taylor have recorded instrumental tracks based on “scraps” of previously unreleased Queen material to accompany the vocals.

The album may also feature a previously unreleased duet between Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson, which Brian May revealed in March of the this year existed in the Queen vaults.

“We had to start from scratch,” May told BBC Radio Wales this week. “Knowing how it would have happened if we’d finished the songs, I can sit there and make it happen with modern technology. It’s quite emotional. It’s the big, big Queen ballads and the big, big epic sound.”
