London: Rock band Queen's new album will feature 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson's duet with their former frontman Freddie Mercury.

The album, Queen Forever, put together by band's guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor contains three previously unheard songs, reported Metro online.

Jackson, who died of a cardiac arrest in 2009, appears on a song called 'There Must Be More To Life Than This'. It was written while Queen were working on their album Hot Space in the 80s, but it was never finished.

Although Mercury later visited Jackson to record his vocals for the song, but it was still left incomplete. Mercury went on to release it as a solo track for his album Mr Bad Guy.
Producer William Orbit has been working on the new album, which he described as '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," he said.

The other two previously unreleased songs to appear are 'Let Me In Your Heart Again' and 'Love Kills'.
