The 30-year-old recordings featuring Mercury's vocals belong to Jackson's estate, which gave May the go ahead to release them back in 2011.

May is working on the unreleased material with bandmate Roger Taylor and producer William Orbit.

Taking to his blog, May said, "There are a few items in progress. We will have something for folks to hear in a couple of months' time, hopefully." He also said the process was "exciting, challenging, emotionally taxing. But cool."

Originally recorded in 1983, the material could be ready in a couple of month's time.
