Queen may release two previously unheard tracks featuring both Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson

Two previously unreleased Queen tracks featuring Freddie Mercury and guest appearances from Michael Jackson are likely to be released next year, it has been revealed.

There had been plans in the Queen camp to put together a whole collection of various previously unreleased recordings featuring Mercury, though those plans have seemingly been dropped after Roger Taylor and Brian May decided there were not enough complete demo recordings to justify a full album.

However, it seems that the two collaborations with Jackson are suitable for a public airing, and it’s been reported that the tracks have now been cleared by the Jackson estate for release sometime next year under the Queen banner. It’s not yet clear when the recordings were made, or how substantial Jackson’s role was in them.
