Unreleased Duet Featuring Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson Comes to Light
After nearly 30 years the previously unreleased duet between two of music's biggest stars is finally available for your listening pleasure.
Now you may have heard the song before, but never like this.
After working on the song together during the Hot Space sessions, the duo never got around to putting the finishing touches on it. So Mercury recorded a solo version of the song for his 1985 solo album Mr. Bad Guy.
The remaining members of Queen brought in producer William Orbit to finish mixing the song just in time for their upcoming compilation album Queen Forever, which will be hitting stores November 11.
Thanks to Orbit, best known for his work on Madonna’s Ray of Light, you can now here the final version of "There Must Be More to Life Than This."
Orbit commented in a statement that "When I first played it in my studio, I opened a trove of delights provided by the greatest of musicians. Hearing Michael Jackson's vocals was stirring. So vivid, so cool, and poignant, it was like he was in the studio singing live. With Freddie's vocal solo on the mixing desk, my appreciation for his gift was taken to an even higher level."
You can check out the song for yourself below and be sure to grab the album Queen Forever when it lands in stores on November 11.
