"There's nothing he can't handle. Our songs are big and theatrical and Adam fits that easily. I think he's the best singer around. His range is staggering."

'Somebody To Love' was written by the band's late frontman Freddie Mercury and featured on Queen's 1976 album A Day At The Races.

Mercury previously revealed the song's composition was influenced by the legendary soul star Aretha Franklin.

The band's latest album Live Around The World features a hand-picked selection of live performances chosen from 218 live shows Queen and Adam Lambert have performed in the past seven years.
