A follow up on the previous article about the new recordings...

Queen guitarist Brian May stopped by BBC Radio ostensibly to discuss Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell, his new book on 19th century French stereoscopic cards. But after detailing his lifelong love of the cards and their odd visions of hell, May revealed plans for a new Queen album featuring unreleased Freddie Mercury vocals from the Eighties.

I wonder if the duets with Michael Jackson will be there? I remember Brian mentioning a few years ago that they were working on the tapes to get them into good enough shape for releasing.

He's mentioned the Jacko duets several times in connection with this project, so I think you can assume they'll be included, or one will. There's also talk of a duet with Rod Stewart.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that "Let Me Live" from Made in Heaven originated in some sessions that at one point involved Rod Stewart. It would be interesting to hear if they have dredged those up.
Or is this the new Rod Stewart who will do duets with everyone? Please please not one of those live person/dead person duets. He could do a duet with Roger though and it would be nice.
Thanks for sharing the news!

Old duet, not new one, at least as far as I know. Brian has talked a fair bit about remastering old recordings, but he's not talked about recording any new stuff with people. I would have to agree that live/dead duets are not a good idea.

And yes, I believe that you're right about "Let Me Live". The version that turned up on the MIH album is one of my favourite Queen songs, but it would certainly be interesting to hear an earlier version.

ETA: There's a bit more information here, although of course it should be taken with the usual "it's a magazine article" pinch of salt.
