Iconic British band Queen has released a new version of its classic rock anthem ‘We Are The Champions’, to raise money for health workers fighting the coronavirus outbreak.

The new single changes the lyrics to ‘You Are The Champions’ and features video of healthcare staff and COVID-19 lockdowns around the world.

Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor (who’s daughter is a doctor and is seen in the video) recorded it in their separate homes in London.

Singer Adam Lambert – who has toured with the band – recorded his vocals in Los Angeles.

All the money raised will go to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 response fund.

“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,” May said in a statement.

“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 song “We Are The Champions” was released in 197, and has since become a global anthem. It was written by Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, who died in 1991.
