After 30 years of languishing in obscurity, 3 duets by Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury will finally see the light of day.

The Times reports that Brian May and Roger Taylor, Queen's guitarist and drummer respectively, have stated that “something for folks to hear” is slated for release in 2 month's time.

The tracks were originally recorded at Jackson's home studio in 1983, but the pair was unable to book further recording time to finish the sessions. According to NME, this may have been due to conflicts between the singers. Queen manager and lawyer Jim "Miami" Beach said the pair had a falling out when the King of Pop brought a live llama into the studio: "Mercury rang me and said: 'Miami, dear, can you get over here? You've got to get me out of here, I'm recording with a llama.'"

Stay tuned at Zumic as further release details become available.

It's hard not to wonder if the llama incident would make it into the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic, which recently lost Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen as its lead role. Read the full story here.
