Listen to Freddie Mercury & Michael Jackson's Stunning Duet

Though Michael Jackson's Xscape saw the King of Pop collaborating with a ton of stars posthumously, a duet from the past featuring another major music icon could be one of the most talked about MJ-related tracks of the year.

On Queen Forever, the compilation Queen is dropping November 11, never-before-released material will be ready for the replaying, including "There Must Be More to Life Than This," which Freddie Mercury fans will recognize from the frontman's first solo release. The Queen Forever version of the track has Freddie and Michael sharing a microphone, and it's epic in all the right ways.

"There Must Be More to Life Than This" delivers everything you've come to expect from the parties involved: sprawling, cinematic arrangements, pristine vocal lines, meditations on broken hearts and life after love and powerful choruses that ask the kind of questions you can never answer.

It's sentimental, it's striking, it's deep, and it's the perfect pairing of two of pop's most beloved voices. "There Must Be More to Life Than This" is one of three "new" songs to shoulder up alongside Queen's greatest hits on Queen Forever, joining "Love Kills" and "Let Me In Your Heart Again."
