Queen Share Previously Unreleased Song “Face It Alone” Featuring Freddie Mercury

Queen have shared a previously unreleased song titled “Face It Alone.” The track, which features the band’s late frontman Freddie Mercury, is from the upcoming “collector’s edition” of “The Miracle.”

Roger Taylor said the following about the song:

“We’d kind of forgotten about this track. There it was, this little gem. It’s wonderful, a real discovery. It’s a very passionate piece.”

Brian May added:

“It’s beautiful; it’s touching.”

“The Miracle Collector’s Edition” box set will be released on November 18 and it will feature the following:

CD 1: THE MIRACLE
The album as originally released on CD, remastered by Bob Ludwig in 2011 from the original first-generation master mixes.

CD 2: THE MIRACLE SESSIONS
A fascinating window into the band’s creative process featuring much sought-after original takes, demos and early versions, including the new single “Face It Alone,” among six previously unheard tracks. Just as revealing – and sure to be prized by the Queen hardcore – are the spoken exchanges between the four members at the Townhouse, Olympic and Mountain Studios, giving listeners a unique snapshot of their friendship and working dynamic.

CD 3: ALTERNATIVE MIRACLE
Recreates the proposed follow-up to the album, Alternative Miracle. Originally considered at the time, this compilation of extra tracks from The Miracle, B-sides, extended versions and single versions was cancelled due to a heavy release schedule.

CD 4: MIRACU-MENTALS
Instrumentals and backing tracks of the ten songs that make up The Miracle.

CD 5: THE MIRACLE RADIO INTERVIEWS
The band discuss, in their own words, the creative process behind the album. The first interview, Queen for an Hour, was broadcast on BBC Radio 1 on May 29, 1989. Host Mike Read speaks with the band for what would be their final group interview. In this interview, Freddie suggests for the first time that his touring days are over. The second interview presents Roger Taylor and Brian May talking with host Bob Coburn and taking live telephone calls on the popular US radio programme Rockline.

BLU-RAY / DVD: The Miracle Videos
The Miracle Videos includes the five promotional music videos and bonus content on both Blu-ray and DVD formats.
