Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor confirmed to the BBC over the weekend that the band will be releasing a new song featuring the band’s late and legendary frontman Freddie Mercury, titled ‘Face It Alone’.
Taylor called it “a little Freddie gem”, taken from the sessions for their 13th studio album, “The Miracle”, released in 1989. Mercury died two years later.
Taylor said in the interview that they “kind of forgot” about the song, calling it “wonderful” and a “true discovery”.
He then teased, “I think it’s coming out in September.”

May added: “It was a bit hidden in plain sight. We watched it a couple of times and were like, ‘Oh no, we can’t really save it. But actually, we went back and our wonderful team of engineers said, “OK, we can do this and that. It’s like a kind of assembly of pieces… But it’s beautiful. How touching.
“It’s a very passionate piece,” Taylor agreed.
In its 1989 review, Rolling Stone called “The Miracle” too “bogged down with synths and stinging drum machines”. But the magazine’s review praised the lead singer’s contributions.
“Fundamentally, ‘The Miracle’ is a showcase for Freddie Mercury and his love of fast, near-operatic vocals. And indeed, Mercury – especially on the title track – never sounded better,” read the review. .
It’s a good sign for fans anticipating “Face It Alone.”
