Secret duets by late pop icons Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury are to be released later this year.

In 2009 it emerged that the former Queen frontman had recorded several songs with the Thriller hitmaker in the 1980s which had remained undiscovered for more than 20 years.

Now Queen guitarist Brian May has revealed three of the songs will finally be officially released to the public for the first time in the autumn, according to The Times newspaper.
