Face it Alone, an Unreleased Freddie Mercury Song is released on October 13th
Queen are releasing a new song featuring legendary frontman Freddie Mercury called “Face It Alone” later this week. The song itself has been called, “a little gem from Freddie … which we kind of forgotten about … wonderful … a real discover”. The song was actually recorded during the sessions from the album, The Miracle, released in 1989.
Originally the song was due for release in September and the date was pushed back to October 13th. Apparently, the first play of the song will be on Ken Bruce’s programme on BBC2 at 11:15am on Thursday 13th October.
Brian May added, “It was kind of hiding in plain sight. We looked at it many times and thought, ‘Oh no, we can’t really rescue that.’ But in fact, we went in there again and our wonderful engineering team went, ‘Okay, we can do this and this.’ It’s like kind of stitching bits together. Brian made a final comment stating that “it’s beautiful. It’s touching.”
At the moment Billboards can be seen around London displaying the song’s name and date. I have also seen shots from Japan with the title in Japanese – it seems Queen are very proud of this release. The Hashtag #FaceItAlone has been ranking very well amongst UK audiences on Instagram and Twitter.
The band has been really teasing the release of this new Queen single with a series of huge billboards all around the world with the text “Queen – Face It Alone” and it also includes a picture of Freddie Mercury in one of his iconic poses and a QR code. The signs first appeared in London and have since been spotted in countries such as Canada, Mexico, Japan, and many more.
The Track, Face it Alone will be released on Thursday 13th October at 11:15hrs BST / 6:15 ET / 3/15 PT … for those who have the initial listen, please leave a comment below on what you think of the track.
