The Works is the eleventh studio album by the British rock band Queen, released in February 1984. After the synth-heavy Hot Space, the album saw the re-emergence of Brian May and Roger Taylor's rock sound, while still incorporating the early 80sretro futuristic electro pop of the German electronic underground (Freddie Mercury) and New York funk scenes (John Deacon).
Recorded at the Record Plant Studios and Musicland Studios from August 1983 to January 1984, the album's title comes from a comment Taylor made as recording began – "Let's give them the works!". During the decade, the band decided not to tour in North America and lost the top spot in US sales, but sales around the world (especially Europe) would be even better. The Works sold over 5 million copies worldwide.
