AceShowbiz - Queen uses one of their songs to help fight AIDS. The legendary rock band has made a previously-unreleased song called "Let Me in Your Heart Again" available on iTunes for Coca-Cola's RED campaign to benefit the Global Fund, which fights AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
Remixed by William Orbit, the song features the vocals from Queen's frontman Freddie Mercury who died form AIDS-related causes in 1991. "It's been 23 years since the world lost our beloved Freddie Mercury," guitarist Brian May said in a statement.
"We've made extraordinary progress in the fight against AIDS in that time. But we cannot simply rest on the fact that the treatment is available. We must ensure that it is provided. [Roger Taylor] and I are proud to lend this rediscovered song to the RED campaign, in the hope that Freddie's powerful voice can inspire the world yet again," he added.
"Let Me in Your Heart Again" was originally recorded while Queen was working on their 1984 album, "The Works". "It somehow didn't get used, or it didn't get finished, I guess, and it just got put aside and forgotten," Taylor told Billboard.
"I think Brian discovered it again, and I'd completely forgotten about it, I have to say. So we did a little work on it. We did a few backing vocals on it and there it is, with all of the original instruments and the rhythm section and guitar as it was recorded at the time. That was a nice surprise for me," he explained.
"Let Me in Your Heart Again" is one of three unreleased Queen songs on "Queen Forever", which is due out on November 11. Other tracks from the set include "Love Kills" and Mercury's duet with Michael Jackson, "There Must Be More to Life Than This".
