Queen is the self-titled debut studio album by the British rock band Queen, released on 13 July 1973 by EMI Records in the UK and by Elektra Records in the US. It was recorded at Trident Studios and De Lane Lea Music Centre, London, with production by Roy Thomas Baker, John Anthony and the band members themselves. The album was influenced by heavy metal and progressive rock. The lyrics are based on a variety of topics, including folklore ("My Fairy King") and religion ("Jesus").
The history of this album would not be complete unless a little background is given on the formation of Queen. Brian May and Roger Taylor, who had been performing in their own bands in their own hometowns of Middlesex and Truro, respectively, throughout the 1960s, finally crossed paths in 1968 when Roger answered an ad placed by two aspiring musicians, Brian and former bandmate and good friend Tim Staffell.

Like any patchy but promising debut from a classic rock group, it's often easy to underrate Queen's eponymous 1973 debut, since it has no more than one well-known anthem and plays more like a collection of ideas than a cohesive album. But what ideas! Almost every one of Queen's signatures are already present, from Freddie Mercury's operatic harmonies to Brian May's rich, orchestral guitar overdubs and the suite-like structures of "Great King Ra. That rich, florid feel could be characterized as glam, but even in these early days that appellation didn't.
