Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury duets could be released in the near future

Rock veteran guitarists Brian May and Roger Taylor spread the word about the duets this week, telling The Times there will be “something for folks to hear” in the coming months.

The two had been preparing the tracks and May shared that the project was “exciting, challenging, [and] emotionally taxing. But cool.”

Reports about the possible launch of the duets first appeared two years ago and now they get a plausible confirmation.

Mercury and Jackson were in 1983 for a short time together in a studio at MJ’s mansion in California, but they didn’t have time to record more tracks.

They didn’t reveal other details about the project, nor the number of songs that will be included on the album.
