The Queen and Michael Jackson duet, ‘There Must Be More To Life Than This’, was written by Mercury during sessions for Queen’s 1981 album, ‘Hot Space’. The band recorded a backing track, but the song was never completed. Mercury later visited Michael Jackson in Los Angeles, where Jackson’s vocals were recorded but the song remained uncompleted. Queen attempted to revive the track during sessions for 1984’s ‘The Works’, but again it was not finished and Mercury’s own version of the song surfaced on his debut solo album, 1985’s ‘Mr Bad Guy’. This new production of the ballad uses Queen’s original backing track and Mercury and Jackson’s vocals, and was produced by William Orbit. Read more at NME and check out the unearthed track below:
