  • Queen Announces New Album: Queen guitarist Brian May revealed that the band plans to release new music later this year. May added that the collection would include unreleased songs sung by Freddie Mercury. The title of the album will probably be called Queen Forever, and fans can expect it at the end of 2014. Perhaps the new music will also include collaborations between Mercury and Michael Jackson, though that’s just an assumption. [via Billboard]
