Following Freddie Mercury’s death in 1991, Queen released their final album Made In Heaven featuring the late singer’s posthumous vocals. While not long afterwards bassist John Deacon retired from the music industry. Of course, Brian May and Roger Taylor have kept Queen going with Paul Rodgers and now Adam Lambert, although no new songs have be released other than the charity single You Are The Champions.
However, Queen and Adam Lambert have in fact been working on new music together.
Roger confirmed the news in an interview with MOJO, but admitted that Brian wasn’t as keen on it anymore.
The Queen drummer, who was promoting his new solo album Outsider, shared: “Well, Brian suddenly lost interest and I don’t really know why. We started it in Nashville when we were all quite tired.
“We couldn’t decide on a title and the lyric felt a little too negative for Queen, maybe.”

Nevertheless, Roger gave fans hope by adding: “But it was pretty damn good, and I hope it comes to light.”
Speaking with Express.co.uk in June, the 72-year-old shared a little more on Queen’s new song.
The Queen drummer said: “Well we haven’t done a lot actually because obviously Adam most of the time’s been in LA.
“But we touched on something and I would love to do something in the future because he’s such a magnificent talent.”
Brian added: “We have dabbled in the studio, I can reveal that. We did dabble privately, secretly, just to play about.
“And as of now it hasn’t turned into any product, but it’s always a possibility. Adam is constantly surprising.
“He’s a creative artist in his own right. We’re always aware he has a solo career alongside what he’s doing with us. So I guess it’s just a question of where the two might meet.”
Queen and Adam Lambert kick off their postponed UK and European tour next summer.
