Here’s a strange twist of rock-pop fate it’s safe to say no one imagined, even in their wildest dreams; badgers’ champion Brian May going at it – by making a crazy new collaborative track, that is – with Psy.

The Queen guitarist and ‘Gangnam Style’ star are – claims The Sun – in talks to remix a single May has written for failed ‘The Voice’ contestant Kerry Ellis. May says he was drawn to Psy having learned the K-pop gent is an avid Queen fan, adding: “I was quite nervous to meet him. The guy’s had 1.6 billion views on YouTube. It turns out that he was pretty nervous too. So we just sat there and looked at each other for a while. Then we had a good conversation and it was nice. It was a friendly lunch”.

On possible collaborations, he added: “You never know what might happen. We talked music, strangely enough, in its various forms, and our history. He’s not a flash in the pan, he’s made six albums. I’ve come to understand what he’s about. He’s a very thoughtful guy”.
