Freddie Mercury’s Voice Appears In Queen’s New Single

English rock band Queen releases their rediscovered single with late Freddie Mercury, “Face It Alone.”


“Face It Alone”

The voice of Freddie Mercury can be heard again in Queen’s new single, “Face It Alone.” The previously unreleased single is now available for all the fans who miss the singer’s incredible vocals. Mercury’s vocals were previously brought back to life in 2019 with “Time Waits For No One.” The song was recorded in 1985. Now, it’s time for another “Mercury collaboration.”

The iconic band was formed in London in 1970 by the four famous band members: singer and pianist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor and bassist John Deacon. Despite the early passing of Freddie Mercury due to AIDS in 1991, the future of the band has always been clear: continue playing. However, not all the members’ intentions matched, and John Deacon soon left as well to dedicate to a different lifestyle. Referring to the doubts around John Deacon’s presence in “Face It Alone,” he sweetly added: “Yes, Deacy is there too.”

The two remaining band members commented on the release. Brian May said in an interview that he is “happy that our team were able to find “Face It Alone.” After all these years, it’s great to hear all four of us.”

Drummer Roger Taylor added:

“We’d kind of forgotten about this track. But there it was, this little gem. It’s wonderful, a real discovery. It’s a very passionate piece.”

“Face It Alone” was originally recorded in 1988 while the group was working on their 1989 album The Miracle album. In that period, 30 tracks were produced but only 14 released on the record. One of these includes the single “I Want It All.” It is great to hear Freddie Mercury make an appearance showcasing his powerful vocals.

The song was re-discovered as the band was working on a reissue of “The Miracle” collectors’ box set. The deluxe album will include outtakes, interviews and demos, and of course the new single. It will be available on Nov. 18th.
