Undercover reports:

At his official website Brian tells fans "It's truly awesome. We lined it all up on the 'virtual multi-track' of the arrangement of the song I'd put together. The marvels of Modern... um...communications! But most of all the marvels of a great singer!"

Farnham recorded his vocal in Melbourne and shipped it to May's London studio where the track was completed by Queen.

"I put about 15 more guitars on, and did a little jiggery-pokery" he says. "Then Roger came in. He actually LIKED the arrangement - a result for me! And he loved Johnny's vocal - it gets better the more you listen to it. I have to say Roger delivered a KILLER drum track, in no more than couple of takes plus a few 'special requests' - you OZ guys an' gals are going to LOVE this!!!! I actually think everyone else will too - the whole thing is a nice progression for the song - it starts off very true to the original, but gets to a new place, kind of post 'Five', post Pavarotti, post New York .... It sound huge. What? Well, it will be a favourite in MY car anyway - screw you guys!"

John Farnham is about to release a new best of featuring for the first time both his EMI and BMG hits. We Will Rock You is expected to be the new,
