I am elated to discover from Classic Rock Magazine that vault tracks featuring two of the greatest vocalists of all time have been unearthed and are being polished to perfection. Imagine a duet of Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson backed by Brian May and Roger Taylor (Queen). I truly hope the Jackson Estate gives their stamp of approval to the release of these studio recordings for fans around the world to cherish.
In 1983, Freddie Mercury recorded some tracks with Michael Jackson that have remained in Queen‘s vault. Now, drummer Roger Taylor tells us that he and Brian May have completed them, and the songs will see the light of day, pending approval from Jackson’s estate.
“Brian especially has been active working on old tracks,” he told Classic Rock Magazine. “A couple of tracks that Freddie did with Michael Jackson…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.”
