While it has been nearly 31 years since the legendary Freddie Mercury left this earth, a never-before-heard song from the Queen frontman has just been released.

Titled 'Face It Alone,' the band's surviving members discovered the track in their archives and it dates from The Miracle recording sessions during which they laid down around 30 tracks for the 1989 album.

Speaking with Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2, drummer Roger Taylor previously explained: "We did find a little gem from Freddie, that we'd kind of forgotten about. And it's wonderful. Actually, it was a real discovery."

Guitarist Brian May then added of the song: "It's beautiful. It's touching."

Mercury died of AIDS-related pneumonia in 1991 at the age of 45. The band has continued touring with Adam Lambert.
