Queen recording new album

Their first since 1995

Queen are currently recording a new album, according to guitarist Brian May.

The band last album released an album in 1995. ’Made In Heaven’ was created using vocals Freddie Mercury left behind prior to his death in 1991.

May and Queen drummer Roger Taylor will join forces with Paul Rodgers, ex of Free, who toured Europe with Queen in 2005.

Original Queen bassist John Deacon retired in the late 1990s.

May told Yahoo: “We have about three weeks booked in the studio at the moment. It was going to be just exploratory to see what happened when Paul and Roger and I were in the same room with a recording machine.

“But we’re already deep into it and we already have some very good material, so I’m pretty excited about that. It’s very new, very different. There may be enough there to create an album, though it’s early days yet. At the moment it’s just a few tracks.

“We don’t really have anything to prove, but we have a lot of passion still in our bodies and it seems to be finding a good place at the moment.”

May also suggested the band would tour following the album’s eventual release.
