It's called, "There Must Be More To Life Than This" and it's been produced by William Orbit. He was working with previously unfinished material from the album The Works.

The new track is one of three unreleased tracks on Queen's upcoming compilation, Queen Forever.

William Orbit told Rolling Stone: "When I first played it in my studio, I opened a trove of delights provided by the greatest of musicians...Hearing Michael Jackson's vocals was stirring. So vivid, so cool, and poignant, it was like he was in the studio singing live. With Freddie's vocal solo on the mixing desk, my appreciation for his gift was taken to an even higher level."
