It's hard to understand. Do you mean other singers singing Queen songs, or the paper (sleeve) that the album is packaged in?

I know a Japanese band who cover the full ANATO (iirc)on the live stage, but I don't have any clue about any album of Queen songs covered by any Japanese band. Besides, I know a Japanese male opera singer who is a huge fan of Freddie (sometimes he has moustache! )and I've heard him sing Queen songs several times on TV, but as far as I know he hasn't released any album full of Queen songs.
Maybe someone who knows a lot more would answer for this...

sorry...I have some info.

I recall three bands and their names are Kween, Opera and JOUSAMA(meaning Queen in Japanese).
I think we can hardly get two of them except Kween.
I'm searching more info..

As for Opera see this below;

As for Kween see this below

As far as I know, "Cheers!" is their original tune.

As for Jousama:

In that CD, Queen songs are sung in Japanese being translated word for word.
