Brian May of Queen Readies New Album

Share This:

Golden Days is the title of the forthcoming new studio album from Queen’s Brian May, his second with singer Kerry Ellis. The 13-track album, which includes five original compositions—two by May, including the title track, and three by May and Ellis—is to be released in the UK and Ireland on Sony on April 7. A U.S. release date has not yet been announced.

The album, according to a press release, also includes new rock arrangements of some of May and Ellis’s favorite songs of all time: a tribute to guitar virtuoso Gary Moore, two songs dedicated to their work on behalf of wild animals, and a couple of reinterpretations of songs which have already become essentials in their live act.

“This album is a true collaboration between Kerry and myself,” says May in the press release. “Five years ago, Anthems was the result of me producing an exciting new artist, Kerry Ellis. This new record has both our names on it, and breaks new ground. We produced ourselves together as a team. I feel confident it’s the best thing we’ve ever done and a worthy testament to 13 years of belief. It also happens to feature Britain’s most beautiful voice!”
