Universal Music Group / UMe today announced the release of “Time Waits For No One”, a previously unheard and unreleased performance from legendary Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.
Originally recorded in 1986 for the concept album of the musical ‘TIME’ with musician, songwriter and producer Dave Clark, “Time Waits For No One” shows Freddie Mercury at his most compelling; a completely stripped-down performance, accompanied by just a piano, showcasing one of music’s most beloved and show-stopping voices.
Its accompanying new video will delight the millions of Queen and Freddie fans around the world, as they witness previously unseen performance footage of Freddie at his most captivating, iconic and electric, recorded one afternoon in April 1986, at London’s Dominion Theatre. It follows on from the unprecedented global success of last year’s Queen biographical film BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, which became the highest grossing music biopic in history, generating more than $900 million dollars at the box office with actor Remi Malek winning the Best Actor Category at the Oscars and Golden Globes for his portrayal of Mercury on the big screen.
In December 2018, Queen’s seminal single ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ was named the most streamed track of the 20th Century, as well as the most-streamed Classic Rock song of all time.
