Members of Queen Team Up with Taylor Hawkins on Record Store Day Single "Holy Man"

Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor have joined forces with Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters to complete a lost Dennis Wilson track “Holy Man.” The late Beach Boys drummer started the song more than 40 years ago but it will now see the light of day on April 13th for Record Store Day.

Queen posted on their official website that ten years ago, Hawkins put vocals to it, and now May and Taylor have made their contribution. The b-side contains Wilson's instrumental version.

The single is not the sole offering from Queen for this year’s Record Store Day. The band will also be selling a picture disc of the soundtrack to Bohemian Rhapsody and a colored vinyl single of "Bohemian Rhapsody" backed with "I'm In Love With My Car." In addition, May is releasing a 12" single of "New Horizons," the song that he recorded in celebration of NASA's New Horizons probe flying past Ultima Thule, an object beyond Neptune's orbit 4.1 billion miles from Earth.
