Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury Duets Might Get Released In An Album

Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury did some duets that may get a release in an album. A dream come true for fans of two icons who left us too soon.

The tracks date back to 1983 when the two legends recorded the songs and later the tracks were stored in Queen’s vaults not to be heard of for decades.

Now, Queen’s former members Brian May and Roger Taylor are announcing they have completed the songs and are ready to release them to the public, pending authorization from the Michael Jackson estate.

Back in July of this year, Rolling Stone, quoting the Times of London, reported three duets recorded by the music greats were getting ready to see the light of day.

The demos were recorded back in 1983, according to the report, at Michael Jackson’s home studio, but as both him and Freddie Mercury were exceedingly busy during that time, a larger project never came to be.

“They were great songs, but the problem was time – as we were both very busy at that period,” Mercury said in an excerpt from Mercury: An Intimate Biography of Freddie Mercury, Rolling Stone says.

At the time, Michael Jackson told the magazine that he was a fan of Freddie Mercury (who wasn’t) and that he had reached out and suggested they work together on Jackson’s next album.

Michael Jackson live.
