Queen’s Brian May announced that he’ll release a brand new solo single titled New Horizons on January 1, 2019. The single will mark the guitarist’s first solo work since the single Why Don’t We Try Again from his 1998 album Another World, and will premiere from NASA control headquarters in Maryland at 12.02am ET (5.02am GMT) to be broadcast live.
May wrote the song with Don Black earlier this month as a personal tribute to the NASA New Horizons mission. New Horizons (Ultima Thule mix) celebrates the probe’s 12-year journey and will include a message from Stephen Hawking congratulating the team on their successful rendezvous with Pluto three years ago.
May has teased some of the track on Instagram, which you can check out at the link: here.
