One of the world’s biggest anthems has been rerecorded specially for the dedicated and hard-working essential workers around the globe.

Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor and singer Adam Lambert have recorded a new version of Queen’s classic, We Are The Champions, filmed their separate bubbles between LA and the UK.

Originally filmed as one of their home performances on Instagram, the overwhelming reaction from fans pushed them to record a new version of the track so it could be available on all streaming platforms.

“It seems to me we should dedicate this one to all the front-line soldiers fighting for Humanity against the insurgent coronavirus,” Brian May said.

“Just like our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents who fought for us in two world wars, those brave warriors in the front line are our new CHAMPIONS. That means the doctors, nurses, cleaners, porters, drivers, tea-ladies and gentlemen, and all who are quietly risking their lives daily to save the lives of our kin. CHAMPIONS ALL!!!”

The band also decided to make it available for download, with all proceeds going to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
