For the first time ever, audio tracks from Queen’s legendary performance at Live Aid are being released as part of the soundtrack album to “Bohemian Rhapsody”, 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises’ forthcoming feature film celebrating the band, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Recorded at the historic Wembley concert in July 1985, these Live Aid songs are among the rare gems and unheard versions from the band’s rich catalogue.
Alongside the show-stopping Live Aid performances of “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Radio Ga Ga”, “Hammer To Fall” and “We Are The Champions”, the album features other rare live tracks spanning Queen’s entire career, new versions of old favorites, and a choice selection of the band’s finest studio recordings. Among them are some of Queen’s biggest hits, including eleven all-time greatest anthems that reached No. 1 around the world. The track listing was announced today, September 5, 2018, which would have been Freddie’s 72nd birthday.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” will have its world premiere in the U.K. on October 23 before opening across the globe in early November. It stars Rami Malek as Freddie, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, Joe Mazzello as John Deacon, and Lucy Boynton as Freddie’s lifelong companion Mary Austin. The soundtrack, featuring all-original Queen recordings and vocals, will be released on CD and digital formats on October 19.
The 22 songs on the soundtrack were produced by Brian May and Roger Taylor, with engineering and co-production by longtime Queen studio collaborators Justin Shirley-Smith, Kris Fredriksson and Joshua J Macrae, and mastering by Adam Ayan and Bob Ludwig.
