Queen announced Friday morning it would "bring back Freddie [Mercury]," according to a press release.
Alongside news the band plans to release their Queen Forever hits collection, they have also shared a previously unreleased version of Mercury's “There Must Be More To Life Than This," featuring Michael Jackson.
Both Mercury and Jackson recorded their vocals for Queen's 1984 set, The Works, but it was never completed. Thus, Mercury released a version sans Jackson on his solo album, Mr. Bad Guy.
The Jackson cut is one of three unreleased songs being included on the forthcoming collection, which will feature Queen's "hits, classic tracks, and new takes on well-known songs," mixed with what guitarist Brian May describes as “things that we have collected together that are representative of our growth rather than the big hits."
Queen Forever will be released Nov. 10 on Virgin/Hollywood Records. It will be available as a 20-track single disc or 36-track, two-disc extended set.
