  • Freddie Mercury in 1982

"Time" was the brainchild of Dave Clark, former leader of the hugely successful multi-million selling group THE DAVE CLARK FIVE, and one of the U.K.'s most prolific and celebrated musicians, songwriters and producers.

Clark, who led the Dave Clark Five band in the 1960s, worked with various singers for "Time" the album.

Universal Music on Thursday dropped the video for a previously unreleased - and great - version of a song from the late and legendary Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, "Time Waits for No One".

"It's just Freddie and piano and it really shows what an unbelievable performer, an incredible range he had", Clark, who found the recording after years of searching, told Reuters.

Not only can fans download an audio version of the song, but they can also watch the always-captivating Mercury perform the song in a music video.

A stripped-back version of Freddie Mercury performing the song "Time" is released on Thursday, the result of a long search for the 1986 recording made at London's Abbey Road Studios.

The track was fuelled by "fabulous food, vodka and Cristal Champagne" courtesy of Freddie's personal chef at the time Joe Fanelli.

Time the musical had a two-year run at London's Dominion Theatre and was derived from 1970s musical The Time Lord by Soames and Daniels, it merged sci-fi, rock music and ahead-of-its-time special effects.

"A few years later I got my engineer to go down and go through everything, we couldn't find it". But the feeling he had during the original rehearsal, experiencing "goosebumps", hadn't dissipated over the decades, and he wanted to hear this original recording - just Freddie on vocals and Mike Moran on piano.

When Clark first commissioned Mercury to sing a song for his musical, naysayers said the superstar wouldn't do it. He unearthed the recording in 2018 and added a new piano track by the original pianist, Mike Moran.

As for the video, Clark rooted out the negatives from the original four-camera shoot (below) along with unprocessed film and spent four days with his editor to produce the new video. A four-day lockdown in a special facility to pore through the negatives with his editor led to the discovery and production of this visual masterpiece, a flawless representation of Freddie's 'magic performance.
