Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor release solo recordings

Just in time for Christmas comes solo work from Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor.

May has just released "New Horizons," his first solo song since 1998.

It's actually a joint project with NASA as the New Horizons probe reaches the edge of the solar system. May says, "This project has energized me in a new way. For me, it’s been an exciting challenge to bring two sides of my life together -- astronomy and music. It was Alan Stern, the project instigator of this amazing NASA mission, who threw down the glove last May. He asked if I could come up with a theme for Ultima Thule which could be played as the probe reached this new destination.”

NASA launched the New Horizons probe in 2006, and on New Year's Day it will perform the most distant flypast in history when it encounters the space object Ultima Thule.

Included in the song is the voice of the late Professor Stephen Hawkin

 

And Queen drummer Roger Taylor also has some new music to talk about, having composed the soundtrack for A Christmas Carol, a film starring his wife, Sarina Taylor. A single called "Christmas in Love," which Roger has also done, is being released alongside the film.
