Queen’s last album during Freddie Mercury’s lifetime was released in 1991, just months before his untimely death at 45. Innuendo’s magnificent final track was the perfect ending with Brian May’s iconic The Show Must Go On, which the weakened singer belted out in the studio after a couple of strong shots of vodka. But after the star died, the guitarist, Roger Taylor and John Deacon knew there was another album left in them made up of the frontman’s unreleased recordings; a treasure trove of hidden gems.

Brian said: “Of course lurking in the wings was all the material we’d done with Freddie, which was unfinished, and what were we going to do with this? Would we manage to make an album with it?”
