"What I can say is the track we dusted off today has the four of us, Freddie, John (Deacon), Roger (Taylor) and myself, playing together on a track we'd forgotten about that was never finished.
"It sounds so fresh... now all carefully transferred into the ProTools (computer programme) environment but sounding exactly like it did straight off the 24-track tape it was recorded on over 30 years ago.
"I got quite emotional hearing some of it... It's crying out to be finally brought into the world."
Mercury died in 1991.
