I LOVED the last one. Some interesting choices on the new one:

"16 years after 'GAIA' composer VALENSIA released his QUEEN TRIBUTE album he's back in the studio recording 'QUEEN III' at the request of his record company. 'QUEEN III' is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2019.

Apart from well-known hits like WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS and SOMEBODY TO LOVE, Valensia will be recording virtually unknown tracks such as Freddie Mercury's 'GREEN', 'VAGABOND OUTCAST', NEW YORK', 'I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE' and 'F.E.W.A.' (FEELINGS ENDED WORN AWAY), entirely arranged in Queen's 'QUEEN II'' style, hence the working title 'QUEEN III' as it will give you a very rough idea with these unknown tracks how a 'QUEEN III' album may have sounded.

The appearance of the Bulsara-penned song 'F.E.W.A.' on the album might be the most interesting track as no one has ever heard the actual song before."

There was a song by this guy I downloaded about 15 years ago. Can't remember the title but he sings 'murderer I think you are a murderer' or summat like that. Very Queen 2/Flick Of The Wrist-ish.

Anyone know?

Do link it here if you find it. Would love to hear more stuff he's done in a Queen style.

He's talented and bonkers enough to pull it off.

I loved his first single "Gaia" which was released in 1993. It reminds me a bit of Bo Rhap since it contains different kinds of style in this song.

I'm guessing he was aiming for that comparison.

Just for reference - this is his My Fairy King which I think is singularly the best Queen cover and definitely rekindled a lot of my love for the band - it reminded me of when I first heard this track when I was little. A mysterious, dark and distant yet happy time. The detail is phenomenal, and the extra touches are soooo right.

I'm most intrigued about "Feelings Ended, Worn Away", since there are no recordings of the song. Actually, as far as I know, nothing is known about the song apart from the name...
Some tidbits:

"In August of 1969, Freddie Bulsara joined the band Ibex. A handwritten set list sold at auction reveals the names of songs the band played at their concerts. It’s a fascinating fragment of the band, showing both the blues-rock covers that influenced them and naming four original songs the band had in their repertoire. They are “Vagabond Outcast,” “F.E.W.A” (which stands for Feelings Ended, Worn Away), “Priestess,” and “Lover.”"
"Wreckage would disband in November of 1969, leaving Freddie in search of a group. In February, he would answer an ad that appeared in Melody Maker, for a band seeking a vocalist. The band was Sour Milk Sea and Freddie’s audition got him the job. Chris “Dummett” Chesney recalls in the Davis article that Freddie brought to the band some of his own songs, such as “F.E.W.A,” “Blag-A-Blues” and “Lover.”"

Yeah - even if he's written it himself, I think I'd trust him to do it good.
