Roger Taylor Announces ‘The Outsider Tour Live’ Album

Roger Taylor has announced a new album, The Outsider Tour Live, for release on Sept. 30.

As its title suggests, the 22-song LP is a collection of tracks recorded live from the Queen drummer’s most recent tour, which supported the release of his 2021 solo album, The Outsider.

The concerts, which took place in the U.K. last October, were Taylor’s first outside of Queen in over two decades. The Outsider Tour Live will be released on LP, CD and digital formats. It includes a variety of songs from The Outsider, as well as Queen classics and a handful of covers, including David Bowie‘s “Heroes” and Led Zeppelin‘s “Rock ‘n’ Roll.” You can see the album’s track listing below.

Ahead of the album’s release, the first track, “Surrender,” is now available. You can hear it below. The song was first released in 1998 on Taylor’s fourth album, Electric Fire.

“I don’t try and sound like Queen or not like Queen,” Roger has said of The Outsider songs, many of which were written and recorded during the COVID-19 lockdown. “I just want it to be me.”

“Roger’s beautiful voice seems to get better with age,” Tina Keys, a member of Taylor’s solo band, said in a press release. “He’s a great frontman, too – even onstage, I was star-struck! We all had such fun playing together, and I think the crowd could tell.”
