About “13”

“13” is a hidden song by Queen from their album Made In Heaven.

“13” began as an experiment by producer David Richards with an Ensoniq ASR-10 sampler. He created a loop of opening chords of “It’s a Beautiful Day” and added several sections of Freddie Mercury vocals including, “Are you running?”, Mercury’s laughter, and the simple ending, “Fab”. Brian May and Roger Taylor contributed to the recording as well. The track was previously only available on the CD edition of the album and the aforementioned promo cassettes.

The track is sometimes referred to as “Farewell to Freddie” or “Fab”. The album’s last listed track on all formats is track 11, “It’s a Beautiful Day (Reprise)”. The 2015 vinyl reissue of Made in Heaven was released as a double disc set with track 13 taking up the entirety of side D. The track was given the name “13” and is listed as such on the album artwork.
