A long-awaited duet by Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson has premiered on radio.
The track - titled 'There Must Be More To Life Than This' - was given its first play on Chris Evans's BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show this morning (September 19.
The track was originally recorded between 1982 and 1983 by the artists, but ultimately only Mercury's solo version appeared on his debut album Mr Bad Guy in 1985.
The duet form of 'There Must Be More To Life Than This' also briefly featured in The Great Pretender, a BBC documentary about the life of Freddie Mercury which aired back in 2012.
A fan made demo of the collaboration has been floating around online for a few years now, but this new final version has been produced by William Orbit.
The new version of 'There Must Be More To Life Than This' is the first cut to be previewed from upcoming album Queen Forever, which is scheduled to be released on November 10.
The LP will be available as a 20-track single CD and an 36-track two-CD set. Skipping obvious hits like "We Will Rock You" and "Bohemian Rhapsody," the collection focuses on lesser-known tunes like "Mother Love," "The Miracle" and "Drowse."
