Freddie Mercury/Michael Jackson Recording Could Soon Be Released

Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen have revealed that they have recordings of the late Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury in their possession and plan on releasing the material.

There is no estimated date for release, but the Jackson estate has agreed to allow the work be released.

“The Michael Jackson estate are happy for us to go ahead with the music,” May told The Sun. “But it’s not something we can rush.”

Our friends at UltimateClassicRock.com report that the recordings took place in 1983 at Jackson’s home. During that time Queen was also touring the United States.

May and Taylor have been busy as of late, looking for their next lead singer and working on unreleased material that was recorded with Freddie, so there is no telling when the Mercury/Jackson duets will be released. But May assures us the release of this material has nothing to do with the almighty dollar.

“I don’t work on things with the aim to make money or for promotional reasons,” says May. “When it’s something we feel is worthwhile then it’s nice if we could get it out there.”
