Queen have shared a rediscovered track featuring Freddie Mercury – listen to “Face It Alone” below.
Over the summer, Roger Taylor and Brian May revealed that they had revealed a previously unreleased song from the band sung by their late husband.
“And it’s amazing,” Taylor told Zoe Ball during an interview on BBC Radio 2. “It was a real find, actually. It’s from the ‘Miracle’ sessions.” May described the melody as “beautiful” and “soulful”, adding: “It was kind of hiding in plain sight.”
Today (October 13), Queen released the heartwarming song along with an official lyric video, which you can check out below.
Fans can also pre-order a special 7″ vinyl edition of ‘Face It Alone’, arriving on November 18th.
Additionally, the track will appear on a limited collector’s edition of Queen’s 13th studio album, “The Miracle.” According to a press release, the eight-disc release features over an hour of previously unreleased recordings, including six previously unreleased songs.
A series of candid in-studio exchanges will also provide “the most remarkable window yet into the creative process of the four members and the joy, desire and humor of returning to work together.”
You can pre-order the collection here (it also goes on sale November 18).
‘Face It Alone’ is the first new Freddie Mercury song to be released in over eight years.
Since Mercury’s death in 1991, Queen have released a string of previously unreleased tracks featuring the frontman. In 2014, they shared the compilation album ‘Queen Forever’, consisting of “forgotten” songs recorded in the 80s.
