Queen’s guitarist and drummer Brian May and Roger Taylor have revealed that the band could record new music with current singer Adam Lambert.

In an interview with Classic Rock, the musicians revealed that they first attempted to record a new song while on tour in Nashville. Taylor said: “We did record a song which we haven’t actually finished. I can’t remember what it’s called. I think we were still discussing what we should call it.”

May clarified that “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. We couldn’t get there.”

Despite this, Taylor said the possibility of new Queen material with Lambert singing does exist: “It would be nice to do some stuff. I wouldn’t rule it out. Adam has said, ‘Anytime you want me to sing on something…’ If the other two decide, ‘let’s do something’, I’d be there.”

Lambert began singing with Queen in 2011. So far, the Queen and Adam Lambert project has been a live one entirely, aside from a version of We Are The Champions, reworked to You Are The Champions in honour of essential workers and released in aid of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

The band’s currently-planned tour of the UK and Europe has been postponed to 2022 due to COVID-19.
