Queen has been one of the most iconic acts in rock music for decades, but since frontman Freddie Mercury’s death in 1991, the band appears to have stopped releasing new music with other artists. However, this will soon change as they plan to release new material with Adam Lambert.
According to the NME, the band first toured with Paul Rodgers in 2004 as Queen + Paul Rodgers.
A few years later, they began touring with Adam Lambert, a former “American Idol” contestant. The relationship between the two music acts progresses as surviving member Brian May teases potential new music with the hit singer.
The legendary guitarist recently spoke with US Radio, stating that Queen “have dabbled a little” in new music production, but fans have yet to hear any of it.
“It would have to be something so special that we would feel we would want to launch it on the public,”
Lambert, on the other hand, is terrified of working with the iconic group because he constantly questions whether it’s appropriate for him to do new material.
“It’s a lot of pressure if you think about it. If they’re going to put something out that’s new, it’s got to be at a certain level. It has to be the right thing,”
Brian May has previously stated that he does not know when new music will be released with the musician because it must be a “very spontaneous moment.”
He said that the band and Lambert had been in the studio to test things out because “things came up.” Despite recording tracks, the group didn’t feel like they were “hitting the button in the right way.”
Although the legendary guitarist stated that Queen was uncomfortable with the collaboration, he clarified that they were not opposed to the idea.
In other news, Queen and Adam Lambert will resume their “Rhapsody” tour across North America, adding eight new dates recently.
