Listen to 'lost' Queen song recorded more than 30 years ago:


Queen fans can listen to a new song featuring singer Freddie Mercury after a 'lost' recording from 34 years ago was unearthed

Face It Alone was originally recorded during the British rock band's 1988 sessions for their album The Miracle, but remained among those that did not make the final cut.

It was later rediscovered when the band's production and archive team returned to the sessions to work on the upcoming reissue of the album.

The single is the first new song released featuring Mercury since 2014's Queen Forever album which included three previously unheard tracks with the singer titled Let Me In Your Heart Again, Love Kills and There Must Be More to Life Than This.

Widely hailed as rock's greatest frontman, Mercury died in 1991 aged 45 of aids-related complications four years after he was diagnosed with HIV.

The classic rock band - comprising of Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon - were founded in 1970 and created hit tracks together including Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You.

Speaking of the rediscovered track, May said: 'I'm happy that our team were able to find this track.

'After all these years, it's great to hear all four of us, yes, Deacy is there too, working in the studio on a great song idea which never quite got completed... until now.'

Taylor added: 'We'd kind of forgotten about this track but there it was, this little gem.

'It's wonderful, a real discovery. It's a very passionate piece.'

The song's arrival comes ahead of the November 18 reissue of the band's 13th album The Miracle, first released in 1989.
