Three new songs recorded in the 1980s by the late singer of British band Queen, Freddie Mercury, and the late King of Pop Michael Jackson are rumored to be on the verge of being launched.
Imagine … the voice of the King of Pop united with that of Queen in one song … in your dreams? Now that just might turn into reality.
At the height of their glory, the two music icons have taken the time, despite their busy schedule, to record a demo pair of three songs in the studio at Michael Jackson’s residence, between 1981 and 1983.
Since Michael and Freddie were working at the time on their projects, they never had time to put the finishing touches on their duets.
However, according to Queen drummer Roger Taylor, the songs “Victory, State of Shock and There Must Be More to Life Than This” may soon be presented to the public.
“We are now working on some never-before-released songs that Freddie made with Michael in the early 80′s. I’m not allowed to say too much about it but they sound incredible!”
Michael Jackson fans will recall that the song State Of Shock, however, was released on the album Victory of the Jackson brothers, in 1984. Since his duo with Freddie Mercury was not finalized, the King of Pop asked Mick Jagger to record the song with him.
As for the singer of Queen, he rerecorded There Must Be More to Life Than This without Michael in 1985 for his first solo album, Mr. Bad Guy.
No date has yet been set for the release of the three songs performed by Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson.
As for Sacha Baron Cohen’s biopic on Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May confirmed in a recent interview with Parisien that it is well under way.
And if on June 25 we will be commemorating 2 years since Michael Jackson’s death, on November 21, the world will remember how 20 years ago Farrokh Bulsara aka Freddie Mercury was passing away.
