Turns out “Love Never Felt So Good” might not be the only Michael Jackson song that could have an impact on the charts this year.

Three years ago, the King Of Pop’s estate gave permission to the surviving members of legendary rock band Queen to finish production on tracks Jackson recorded in the early 1980s with the band’s frontman Freddie Mercury. Today, the first of those songs, “There Must Be More To Life Than This,” premiered on UK radio. It was reported to have been recorded by Mercury and Jackson sometime between 1982 and 1983, and the final mix of the song was done by British producer William Orbit.

“There Must Be More To Life Than This” will appear on Queen’s upcoming collection of unreleased tracks called Queen Forever, which Orbit announced in late July that he was working on.
