Queen + Adam Lambert did, in fact, record a new song together some time ago, though drummer Roger Taylor says the track was never finished or titled.
Guitarist Brian May added: "It was a song that we'd tried to adapt that had come from a friend. It had the making of being a great song, but we couldn't crack it. We couldn't get there."
The sessions in question occurred in Nashville, presumably during Queen + Adam Lambert's 2019 U.S. tour.
But Taylor suggested a studio collaboration is still a possibility, albeit a distant one. Lambert is nothing if not accommodating to his bandmates' vision.
"It would be nice to do some stuff," he said. "I wouldn't rule it out. Adam has said, 'Any time you want me to sing on something...' If the other two decide 'Let's do something,' I'd be there."
Last spring, Queen + Adam Lambert recorded an at-home version of "We Are the Champions" to raise money for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
