Michael Jackson And Freddie Mercury Unheard Duets To Be Released This Year

30 July 2013, 15:09

The tracks were recorded at the late King of Pop's home studio in California over thirty years ago.

Three unheard duets between Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury are set to be released later this year.

The songs were recorded three decades ago when the artists got together at the 'Smooth Criminal' singer's home studio in Encino, California.

Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor are putting the finishing touches to the tracks alongside producer William Orbit.

Billboard reports how the guitarist has been adding new solos and backing vocals to the original recordings after being granted access to the 1983 session from Michael's estate back in 2011. 

"There are a few items in progress. We will have something for folks to hear in a couple of months' time, hopefully," wrote Brian on his blog. 

It comes shortly after news Sacha Baron Cohen had pulled out of filming the part of Freddie Mercury in a biopic of the Queen frontman's life.

Snoop Doog also recently revealed how he recorded with Michael before his death.
