Queen has made Paul Rodgers a partner once again to release an album that will be out sometime in 2008.
Surviving members of big rock act Queen have teamed up with ex- Bad Company vocalist Paul Rodgers to record an album that guarantees a major shake up in rock genre. So far they have completed nine songs and seen the end of the line in early 2008.
Rodgers released a statement regarding the project that will start this October. "With Queen and myself, it's a very organic thing," he said. "We're letting it sort of develop itself naturally and not pushing it or giving it any pressure. We go in, just the three of us. Roger gets on the kit, Brian gets on the guitar, I get on the acoustic guitar and piano, either/or, and then we share the bass line afterwards."
The 58-years old singer also disclosed that the materials wouldn't be far from Queen's trademark harmonies and his blues vibe. "My own approach, of course, is more of a bluesy thing," he added. "If you add those two together it makes something else, something brand new."
With current pace, Rodgers predicts that the album would be finished by next year and a tour may follow soon afterward.
As a trio Rodgers, Brian May and Roger Taylor have released a live album and DVD in 2006 that contains one new track "Take Love". The song is yet to be recorded in the studio.
