Back in 1981, Queen and David Bowie teamed up for one of the greatest duets in rock history. They recorded the iconic tune “Under Pressure” which has become one of the biggest rock songs in the history of music! It featured two fantastic voices in Freddie Mercury and David Bowie and to this day, people play it regularly.
Many assume that this is the only song that Freddie and Bowie recorded together, but according to queen guitarist Brian May, there is more music they both did together locked away in the vault! May says that “Under Pressure” isn’t the only song they recorded together. He says that there is more music, and that there are close talks about releasing them in the future! But May says everything wasn’t so glamorous between them. He says that Bowie and Mercury “locked horns,” but the end results and sessions themselves were enjoyable!
“Those are the things that happen in a studio. [They locked horns] in subtle ways, like who would arrive last at the studio. So it was sort of wonderful and terrible. But in my mind, I remember the wonderful now, more than the terrible.”– May said.
Hopefully we hear these recordings soon, because it sounds they are great!
