From the vaults, a new recording of Freddie Mercury has been released

A new recording of Freddie Mercury performing Time Waits for No One, a demo version of his song Time, has been released.

Mercury first recorded the song in the mid 1980’s for friend Dave Clark’s musical project Time. The concept album featured some of the biggest singers of the time including Cliff Richard, Dionne Warwick, Leo Sayer and Julian Lennon. Clark was the leader of The Dave Clark Five, famous for their 60’s hit Glad All Over. 

Mercury performed the title track to the project, but now a demo recording of the song has been uncovered. Clark returned to work on the project, isolating Mercury’s vocals and recorded a new piano track for the tune.

The song was recorded in early 1986, a time when several of the band members of Queen had spent some time recording solo material.

When the track was first released Clark and Mercury gave several media interviews and said they had worked all through the night to make the recording of the song, and often argued about how the song should sound, but they both made sacrifices to come up with the final recording.

Take a listen to the new version.
