The Queen guitar legend was speaking to Gigwise at the 2015 Ivor Novello Awards, where we asked him how, if at all, new material might be coming along the adopted member and pop sensation.  

"It's not coming along, no we're not doing that," May told Gigwise. "Not at the moment anyway, we might do. At the moment we're watching with interest while Adam pursues his solo career, and it seems to be going very well. He's an amazing, amazing artist, and there's no getting away from that. It's very interesting to watch him develop.

"We're very conscious that he doesn't want to be with us all the time - that would be so wrong, for us to just envelop him and never let him go off and do anything else, so it's very important that his own career is progressing now. We're looking forward to being back together in September to do Rock In Rio, and some dates in Argentina and Venezuela I believe.

When asked if he had been writing new songs himself, May told Gigwise: "I haven't been writing a lot, I've been very busy doing other things. From 1am to 5am in the old days, I'd be writing songs, but now I tend to be looking at what the government's doing and how I can stop them!"

Meanwhile, Adam Lambert is set to release his new album The Original High on 12 June.
