The Queen drummer released “Isolation” last month after writing and recording the tune in his garden shed during the COVID-19 lockdown. Taylor played all of the instruments on the track and performed all of the vocals.
“There is a certain frustration in not really knowing what is going to happen.” Taylor explained of the track in an interview with BBC Radio 6. “It was a frustration and a slight anxiety behind it all. So I just thought I would write a song about how to fill the day: routine in isolation. It’s something we are not used to. It is a direct reflection of how I was feeling at the time.”
While the song’s subject matter reflects the difficult and unpredictable times we’re living in, it has a surprisingly lighthearted feel and a tone of unity and hope, which is just what we all need right now.
Roger Taylor will head back out on the road with Queen + Adam Lambert for their UK & European tour in May of 2021. In the meantime, fans can watch “The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story” now streaming on Netflix.
