Queen return to the recording studio

Following the success of their recent shows, with ex-Free/ Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers ably filling the Mercury leotard, rock behemoth Queen has entered the recording studio to work on the band's first new material for over a decade.

On his official site, Brian May revealed: "This is our first Queen new recording session for about 15 years. It may turn into an album… It may lead elsewhere, but right now we are having fun."

He also mentions feeling like “a band, in a natural way,” and hinted at a change in musical direction. "It sounds pretty amazing to my ears... Very different from anything Paul or Queen have ever done. And pretty epic!" Keep an eye on Brian´s site for further developments.
