The 'We Will Rock You' hitmakers will be releasing a new song which it recorded many years ago. 

According to a statement released on Instagram, the band's latest release, 'Face It Alone', was recorded in 1988. 

It was supposed to form part of the band's 'The Miracle' album, but didn't make the cut.

Fast forward to 2022, the band's production and archive team rediscovered the track while working on material for the reissue of the album. 

The band's guitarist Brian May told Sky News: "I'm happy that our team were able to find this track." 

He added how exciting it was for the band to come together to work on the song. 

"After all these years, it's great to hear all four of us... working in the studio on a great song idea which never quite got completed... until now," he said. 

The new album will not only feature ‘Face It Alone', but more unreleased songs, though the band didn't share their names. 

"Available on The Miracle Collector’s Edition coming on November 18, featuring original takes, demos and rough cuts, and six previously unreleased tracks!," it wrote on IG.
