Michael Jackson & Freddie Mercury collaboration to be released

Three 1983 collaboration songs by Michael Jackson and Queen's Freddie Mercury are set to be released for the first time.

One of the songs was a demo for the Jackson and Mick Jagger collaboration 'State Of Shock', reports 411 Mania. That song was released in 1984.

The two other tracks are called 'Victory' and 'There Must Be More To Life Than This'.

'State Of Shock' and 'Victory' were set to come out in 2002 but the release was pulled.
