Brian May recorded a version in 1997, intending to release an album of covers, tentatively called Heroes. He changed the nature and approach of the album, dropping the "covers" idea and focusing on his collaborations and new songs of the time. "Slow Down" would survive the change and appear on the new album anyway, Another World, released in 1998. This version features May on vocal and lead guitar, Cozy Powell on drums, Jamie Moses on guitar, Spike Edney on keyboards and Neil Murray on bass. It was recorded on the same day the five recorded covers of "Maybe Baby", "Only Make Believe" and "Marie's The Name (His Latest Flame)", all for the Heroes album. The first two tracks would end as B-sides to various singles from the album and "Marie" would go unreleased, though it was leaked to the public (much to May's consternation) in 2006.
