Queen: ‘Unreleased tracks with Michael Jackson are great – and finished’


Queen’s Roger Taylor has revealed that the band have been working on unreleased Queen material, including tracks Freddie Mercury recorded with Michael Jackson.
In conversation with Nicky Horne for tomorrow’s Classic Rock Magazine Show (Oct 24), 6-9pm on www.teamrockradio.com, Taylor comments:
“Brian especially has been active working on old tracks. 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.”
The tracks were recorded at Jackson’s home studio in 1983.
