During a new interview, Adam Lambert has admitted he isn't sold on the idea of recording new music with Queen.
"People always ask if we want to record together. I’m not sure it makes total sense because it wouldn’t really be Queen, because to me Queen is Freddie [Mercury]," the singer said.
He went on the clarify that the live experience with Queen is what really brings him the most joy:
"My favorite thing is collaborating and putting these concerts together and creating onstage -- it’s super fulfilling and exciting. To present these ideas to these two gentlemen -- especially when they like the idea!"
Previously, guitarist Brian May had said "you never know" when asked about recording with Lambert. Drummer Roger Taylor added that new songs were "quite possible".
"If we do anything in the future, I'd like it to be something new. I don't know how new it would sound, but I think if Brian could come up with a song or two [that] we felt sort of fitted," Taylor said back in 2016.
Lambert's new comments have poured cold water on the prospect though, with his focus more on his solo project, as well as two months of touring with Queen.
