Adam Lambert and Queen re-recorded “We Are The Champions” for a very special group of people – frontline workers.
The musicians recorded their new version of the iconic song from home, where they’re staying home and staying safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“Just like we sent our young men and women into two world wars to fight, these young men and women are now fighting for us and risking their lives every day,” guitarist Brian May shared with Rolling Stone about the new version. “That’s what this song has become about. It’s for everyone who is out there working and putting their life at risk.”
There were a few different versions that came out of this team up, however, Adam‘s “You Are the Champions” line won out.
“We told him to experiment and maybe do a few different versions,” Brian shared. “He came up with changing those words in the last chorus and I think it was a very good solution, just perfect. It takes a different turn at the end.”
