Queen + Adam Lambert are honoring COVID-19 frontline workers with a new version of “We Are The Champions” called “You Are The Champions.” Proceeds from the track will go towards the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.

The band issued the following statement:

“By each playing our part and addressing the difficult times we are all sharing we will win this challenge. During this time our thoughts and thanks are with those dedicated medical heroes standing up to the battle daily on our behalf. They are the champions. You are the champions.”

Brian May also commented:

“It seems to me we should dedicate this one to all the front-line soldiers fighting for Humanity against the insurgent coronavirus. Just like our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents who fought for us in two world wars, those brave warriors in the front line are our new CHAMPIONS. That means the doctors, nurses, cleaners, porters, drivers, tea-ladies and gentlemen, and all who are quietly risking their lives daily to save the lives of our kin. CHAMPIONS ALL!!!”

Roger Taylor continued:

“As a father with a daughter in the front line, I am ultra-aware of the vital work they are doing daily to save us and our society. Their bravery and sacrifice must not be prejudiced by anything less than a one hundred per cent effort by our governments to protect them. They are precious to us all and they are truly our champions.”

Adam Lambert added:

“It is with the deepest gratitude to all those on the frontline all over the world that we dedicate our performance. Thank you for keeping us safe, we are in awe of your bravery and strength.”

Elizabeth Cousens, president and CEO of the UN Foundation, also had the following to say:

“‘We Are The Champions’ has always been a rallying cry. We are grateful to Queen and Adam Lambert for using their talents to support our heroes on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response. Their contribution to this fight will lift spirits and raise critical funds for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.”

@frozensoultx announce signing with CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS! Dallas Texas’ #FROZENSOUL lives up to its name as death metal at its coldest and most classic. Now, having stirred the underground with their four song demo-turned-EP “Encased In Ice” (via California’s Maggot Stomp Records) and a string of unforgettable live shows across the US, FROZEN SOUL have inked a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. “As I've grown and gotten further and further into heavy music, Century Media's rich history in death metal has played a huge role in developing me as a musician: from Grave and Deicide to Blood Incantation and Skeletal Remains we’re honored to be part of that legacy,” says frontman Chad Green. Formed in 2018 by Green and guitarist Michael Munday, who were both also handling caveman duties with local bonecrushers, End Times, FROZEN SOUL immediately picked up a buzz for their filthy, raw sounds and atmospheric live show. Shows opening for Blood Incantation, Gatecreeper, and Obituary helped usher the band into the national light as crowds were left stunned in the band’s icy wake, chilling blue lights and a snow machine addled atmosphere that chilled the Dallas heat. With only their EP to their name, FROZEN SOUL (its lineup now rounded out by bassist Samantha Mobley, second guitarist Chris Bonner and drummer Matt Dennard) hit the road in North America throughout 2019 as well as the dead of Winter 2020, converting crowds much like the march of Game of Thrones’ Night King. “It was a classic case of hard work and vision paying off”, says Century Media US A&R Mike Gitter. “Their influences are classic, but ugly riff for riff, they set themselves apart by being that much heavier.” Says Century Media head Philipp Schulte: „We are very happy to announce the worldwide signing of FROZEN SOUL from Texas. The band got our attention with their excellent demo release “Encased In Ice” that offers death metal in its most primal form – ferocious, straight and brutal. Bands like Grave, Unleashed and Morgoth laid the foundation to Century Media Records. Teaming up with FROZEN SOUL means to solidify this foundation and to carry the torch of real death metal into the future
