It’s been a very prolific 2014 for Michael Jackson. Earlier this year, his posthumous album Xscape dropped. Months from now, Michael Jackson will be making another appearance: this time on Queen’s new album, Queen Forever.
The song, recorded back in 1981, is called “There Must Be More To Life Than This,” and it was intended for the Hot Space album. However, the track was never completed, and it actually popped up as a solo cut on Freddie Mercury 1985’s Mr. Bad Guy album.
Famed producer William Orbit finished the song. In a released statement, Orbit said:
“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.”
Queen Forever drops on November 11th.
