Queen Discover More Unreleased Freddie Mercury Material

(hennemusic) Queen guitarist Brian May has revealed the band have discovered more unreleased material featuring their late frontman Freddie Mercury in their vaults.

"There's more in there than we thought, in the Queen source archive," May recently told Mojo magazine via The Guardian. "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."

The guitarist compared the project to Queen's 1995 album "Made In Heaven", released four years after Mercury's death due to complications from AIDS. As with those tracks, Queen are taking Mercury's unused takes, cleaning them up, and adding original music. "If we find an analogue 24-track of Freddie singing something that never got finished, the first thing we do is ... make [a digital] copy at the highest resolution you can," May said. "Then we start weaving our tapestry." more on this story
