The ‘powerful’ new single ‘It’s unmistakably him’ will feature Freddie Mercury’s rare vocals.

Rare vocals from FREDDIE MERCURY’s 1988 Barcelona sessions will be featured on a brand new single for the charity that bears his name.

Freddie Mercury’s death was 30 years ago yesterday, and now the Queen singer is being honored with a new charity single.

Stuart Leathem and Esther Trousdale, an Irish music duo, quietly released a song titled Little Freddie Goes to School in 2015.

Rare vocals from the singer’s 1988 Barcelona sessions with Montserrat Caball√© were featured on the track.

Before becoming a star, Little Freddie Goes to School imagined the young Queen singer going to boarding school in India alone.

Stuart was restless about his song earlier this year, and he wanted to make a brand new definitive mix for Freddie’s 75th birthday.

“I got into a conversation with the talented producer and engineer Myles Clarke, who had previously worked for Pete Townshend and The Who before joining the incredible team at Dolby Atmos,” he said.

We agreed that Little Freddie had a lot of untapped potential and set about working on it.

“Myles did a fantastic job reworking the original stems, and I stripped back and re-recorded other elements of the song to give it a more anthemic, live feel.”

In the end, this arrangement is quite different from the original.”

“Special mention to the incredible folks at Abbey Road Studios who worked on Freddie and Esther’s vocals to give the impression that they were in the same room at the same time on this duet,” Stuart continued.

“We were blown away by the song’s final masters and are overjoyed to be able to share it with the world.”

“This new arrangement is the definitive version of the song, and it is a once-in-a-lifetime honor for Esther and me to be able to bring this track to life.”

The duo expressed their delight at the news that every download of the song or video would benefit the Mercury Phoenix Trust, a charity that fights HIV/AIDS around the world.
