Queen guitarist Brian May revealed that the band’s attempt to record a new song with Adam Lambert failed and it was abandoned, though he would like to attempt to record a new album, but he isn’t sure.
Brian May made the comments in a Classic Rock interview celebrating the 50th anniversary of Queen forming as a band.
Roger said you tried to record a new song with Adam a couple of years ago.
It was a song that we’d tried to adapt that had come from a friend. It had the makings of being a great song, but we couldn’t crack it.
Hand on heart, do you ever envisage there being a brand-new Queen and Adam Lambert studio album?
I don’t know. That’s the honest answer. I really, really don’t know. I can’t see any objection to it, but it just hasn’t happened so far.
When you look back on the last fifty-odd years and the life you’ve had, does it sometimes take you by surprise?
Constantly. I still tend to walk into a room and assume that nobody knows who I am, and feel that I need to prove myself. Those things don’t go away. I wake up and I go: “My god, did that stuff really all happen?”
