Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury Duets to Debut in Fall
From Paul McCartney to his own sister, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson was always up for a good collaboration. And according to new reports, his studio sessions with Queen frontman Freddy Mercury will be released in the fall.
According to British newspaper The Times, Mercury’s former bandmates have revealed that both singers recorded tracks together in 1983. And while there are a few recordings, the two late performers didn’t have enough time in their busy schedules to record enough songs for a full-length album.
Jackson was reportedly a fan of Mercury’s music and was looking forward to the collaboration. Unfortunately, the two did have a falling out when Jackson brought a llama into the studio during a session.
The songs they recorded were ‘There Must Be More to Life Than This,’ ‘State of Shock’ and ‘Victory.’
