Queen drummer Roger Taylor releases video for new single Isolation

Queen drummer Roger Taylor has released an animated video for his new single, “Isolation.”

Taylor collaborated on the clip with Animind Studio 2020, who he worked with on his previous release, 2019’s “Gangsters Are Running This World.”

Written by the rocker while in lockdown during the ongoing global crisis, the pandemic-inspired tune – which features the chorus “strange times indeed” – shares the communal feeling of new routines during this period while remaining optimistic about the world ahead.

Taylor’s last solo album was 2013’s “Fun On Earth”; he has issued a series of singles since that time while touring yearly with Queen and Adam Lambert.

The original Queen lineup have been honored with a special series of stamps by UK’s Royal Mail in sync with their formation in London 50 years ago.

Now available at, the 13-stamp collection includes a band portrait and four live images alongside eight of their iconic album covers:1974’s “Queen II” and “Sheer Heart Attack”, 1975’s “A Night At The Opera”, 1977’s “News Of The World”, “The Game” (1980), 1981’s “Greatest Hits”, “The Works” (1984) and 1991’s “Innuendo.”

Celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2021, Queen becomes only the third music group to have a dedicated stamp issue – following The Beatles in 2007 and Pink Floyd in 2016.
