Queen + Adam Lambert have just released their new version of the band's 1977 classic, “We Are The Champions” — renamed “You Are The Champions.” The trio had performed a stripped down trio version of the legendary tune and uploaded it to Brian May's social media platforms.
The “virtual jam” version has now been supplemented with bass work from Queen's touring band bass player Neil Fairclough, and is now available on all streaming and download services. Proceeds raised from the track will go to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO), powered by the United Nations Foundation.
