Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury collaboration to be released

No release date has been given

The collaboration between Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury recorded in 1983 at Jackson’s home studio is being prepared release, Queen guitarist Brian May writes on his website. The pair recorded vocals to the songs “There Must Be More to Life Than This,” “State of Shock,” and “Victory.” “There Must Be More to Life Than This” would later be released on Mercury’s debut solo album Mr. Bad Guy, albeit without Jackson’s vocals.

The songs are being prepared with the permission of Jackson’s estate, and will be released in a couple of months. May says the project is “exciting, challenging, emotionally taxing. But cool.”
