This will be the group’s first new album in 13 years, since the launch of ‘Made in Heaven’ in 1995.

Rodgers, Brian May, and Roger Taylor have already recorded the album.

Queen have also revealed on their website that they will begin a seven-week tour two weeks after the album’s release.

The band will perform in 14 European countries during this tour, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The tour will kick off in Moscow on September 16 and then move through Poland, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Britain, Spain, Hungary, Serbia, the Czech Republic and Austria.

The band’s gig in Poland will be a free concert at the Gdansk Shipyard, the cradle of the 1980s Solidarity trade union movement.

Queen have also revealed that a tour of Latin America will follow their European tour, but they did not reveal the details of it. (ANI)
