Queen have released a missing song featuring late band member Freddie Mercury for the first time in more than eight years.

Face It Alone was originally recorded during the British rock band’s 1988 sessions for their album The Miracle, but remained among those that didn’t make it into the final version.

It was later rediscovered when the band’s production and archive team returned to the sessions to work on the forthcoming album reissue.

The single is the first new song to be released since Mercury’s 2014 album Queen Forever, which included three previously unheard tracks featuring the singer “Let Me In Your Heart Again,” “Love Kills,” and “There Must Be More.” to Life Than This”.

The former Queen frontman died of complications from AIDS in 1991 at the age of 45.

The classic rock band – consisting of Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon – formed in 1970 and together they created hits like Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You.

About the rediscovered track, May said: “I am happy that our team was able to find this track.

“After all these years, it’s great to hear that all four of us, yes, Deacy are there too, working in the studio on a great song idea that never quite got finished…until now.”

Taylor added, “We kind of forgot about that track, but there it was, this little gem.

“It’s wonderful, a real discovery. It’s a very passionate piece.”

The song’s release comes ahead of the band’s 13th album The Miracle, first released in 1989, on November 18th.
