Tracks announced for the forthcoming album include 'Say It's Not True,' which was released in late 2007 as a special World AIDS Day download. That track aside, the remaining songs are all newly penned by guitarist Bryan May, drummer Roger Taylor and Rodgers.
The yet-to-be-heard 'C-lebrity' will receive a sneak preview when the band appears on the U.K.'s 'Al Murray's Happy Hour' TV show on April 4th. In support of the disc, the band will launch a world tour at Moscow 's SCO Olympic Arena on September 16th.
Queen's last studio effort, 'Made In Heaven,' was released in November 1995 and featured the group's final recordings with original vocalist Freddie Mercury, ultimately achieving global sales in excess of 20 million. Mercury succumbed to AIDS on November 24, 1991.
Rodgers – who reaped multi-platinum sales while fronting both Free and Bad Company in the 1970s – first aligned with Queen's surviving members in 2004 for a live performance.
