GOSSIP: Kerry Ellis & Brian May working on new album 'Anthems 2'

Kerry Ellis and Brian May have revealed that they are working on a new album. 

Following the release of their first album Anthems in September 2010, the pair are currently working on its follow-up Anthems 2.

Speaking to Simon Mayo during an interview on BBC Radio 2's Drivetime show on 10th June, May said: "We're working on Anthems 2. We're not going to rush it, but we have some good stuff already." 

He explained the album will be released at the end of this year or at the beginning of 2016. Ellis added: "We're back in the studio over the summer and we've worked on bits already."

May spotted Ellis when she was in My Fair Lady at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and invited her to audition for his Queen musical We Will Rock You. After originating the role of Meat in the show, Ellis and May have gone on to work together extensively, both in the studio and on world tours. They released their latest single 'One Voice' in April.

Known as the first lady of the West End, Ellis' theatre credits also include: Grizabella in Cats (London Palladium), Elphaba in Wicked (Apollo Victoria/Broadway), Nancy in Oliver (Drury Lane), Fantine in Les Miserables (Queen’s), Ellen in Miss Saigon (UK Tour), Beth in War of the Worlds (World Arena Tour), Svetlana Sergievsky in Chess (Royal Albert Hall), Mimi in RENT (UK Tour), West End Men (Vaudeville) and Tell Me on a Sunday (RCCL).
