Queen announced they will release their first album of new material since the Freddie Mercury era. This will be the first Queen studio album to feature new vocalist Paul Rodgers and their first studio album of any kind since 1995's Made in Heaven, which featured the band using Mercury's last vocal recording session before his death in 1991. One of the new songs, "Say It's Not True," was previously released as a free download on World Aids Day. The rest of the songs were recorded in late 2007/early 2008, with one song dubbed "C-lebrity." The album is expected to be ready for release on September 1st, with the tour starting two weeks later.
