2018 was the year of Freddie Mercury.

Despite it being 27 years after his death, the name of the Queen frontman was on everyone’s lips thanks to the biographical film Bohemian Rhapsody.

The Oscar-winning movie reignited a surge in Queen’s music and now it appears we will soon be able to add another song to the collection.

“Time Waits For No One” is a previously unreleased version of “Time”, which was recorded in 1986 for Mercury’s concept album and musical of the same name.

“‘Time Waits For No One’ is a tribute to the musical force of Freddie Mercury; the performance, the drama, the vocal range, and after four decades waiting in the wings, is finally out for new and old fans alike,” reads the official statement. “A stunning eulogy to the Queen frontman, produced and directed by one of his closest friends.”

The song was originally shared last month but the physical copy will drop on July 26th.

In addition, Mercury’s long-time friend, Dave Clark, who produced the track, also unearthed negatives from the original recording session which have now been compiled into a music video.
