A New Freddie Mercury Song Has Been Uncovered

And a video of unused footage was cut together to go along with it.

As many iconic songs as we got from Freddie Mercury during his lifetime, it will never have been enough. He deserved additional years to continue growing as an amazing artist, and we deserved the songs that would have come from that.

But we at least have one more now. Kind of.

An alternate version of the song “Time Waits for No One” Mercury recorded for the concept album for his friend Dave Clark’s musical Time has just been released.

Whereas the original was heavily produced with nearly 100 tracks, this version featured only Freddie and a piano. Clark poured through the archives to find it, and eventually was able to bring in the original pianist, Mike Moran, to re-record a new accompaniment track.

What resulted is a beautiful arrangement elevated by an emotional performance befitting any song by Freddie Mercury.

And we didn’t just get a song, either. Clark went through the negatives from the original music video they shot back in 1986 and pulled never-before-seen footage to create a brand new music video well-suited to this arrangement.

It may only be an alternate version to a well-loved song, rather than something entirely new, but it’s still Freddie Mercury, and it’s still something fans everywhere will undoubtedly appreciate finally getting to hear after all these years.
