Queen have been touring all over the world with Adam Lambert since 2011, and recently the band revealed that they are considering releasing an album with the singer as their frontman.
Since the passing of Freddie Mercury in 1991, Queen have never released any new original music. They’ve only made a compilation of unreleased material, Made in Heaven, in 1995. While the 2008’s The Cosmos Rocks was marked as a ‘Queen + Paul Rodgers’ release.
When guitarist Brian May was asked on US Radio if they are considering releasing new music with Lambert, he said:
“We have dabbled a little. It is just that you haven’t heard any of it.
“It would have to be something so special that we would feel we would want to launch it on the public.”
While Lambert added:
“It’s a lot of pressure if you think about it. If they’re going to put something out that’s new, it’s got to be at a certain level. It has to be the right thing. And I’ve always said, ‘Is it appropriate for me to be doing new material?’ I feel like it scares me.”
May has previously hinted that the band has been working on things in the studio but is still unconfirmed if it will be Queen’s new material.
