William Orbit - William Orbit Teases Collaboration With Queen

Dance producer William Orbit is giving legendary rock band Queen a music makeover by teaming up for an unlikely collaboration.

The British beatmaker, who has previously worked with the likes of Madonna and Britney Spears, is teasing fans about the secret project via his Twitter.com account, but is declining to share further details about the tracks.

In a recent post, he wrote, "Am definitely working with Queen. Amazing songs. That's all I'm sayin 4 now (sic). Watch this space."

The surviving Queen members have also remained quiet about the Orbit collaboration, but earlier this year (14), guitarist Brian May revealed the We Will Rock You hitmakers were working on restoring previously unreleased songs for a new collection.

The veteran rocker admitted the album would likely be titled Queen Forever and reports suggest it may even include a duet between late frontman Freddie Mercury and tragic Michael Jackson from 1983.

May said, "Most of it comes from the '80s when we were in full flight. It is quite emotional. It is the big, big ballads and the big, big epic sound. It wouldn't have been if we hadn't have done this restoration job. We had to start from scratch because we only had scraps. But knowing how it would have happened if we had finished it, I can sit there and make it happen with modern technology."
