Back in 1973, Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon’s unsigned band struck a deal with EMI for their self-titled album Queen. The iconic rock group worked alongside the record label until 2010 after almost 40 years together. At the time, Queen manager Jim Beach announced the band would be leaving EMI and had signed a new contract with Universal Music. But just a couple of years later Universal acquired EMI which went on to be the worldwide label of Queen and Adam Lambert’s Live Around the World album last year.

Most recently, Brian May has worked with EMI on the re-mastered version of his debut solo album Back to the Light and he’s now working on one for his second, Another World.

In a recent Instagram post, the Queen guitarist visited the record label where he shared how pleased he was to be working with them again.

The 74-year-old wrote: “Dear folks …. thought you might like to know I visited my record company today.

“By ‘MY’ record company, I’m not saying I own it! It’s the company that kindly put their faith in BACK TO THE LIGHT 2021.”
