Queen to Release Previously Unheard Live Tracks on 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Original Soundtrack
By Starr Bowenbank | September 05, 2018
Queen has announced on Wednesday (Sept. 5) that they will release a series of unreleased live recordings from their legendary performance at Live Aid as part of the original soundtrack to Bohemian Rhapsody, the upcoming Queen biopic.
Recorded in July 1985 at the historic Wembley concert, the songs included on the soundtrack are rare tracks previously unheard of in the band's expansive catalog.
The soundtrack contains 22 songs, featuring the Live Aid recordings of "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Radio Ga Ga," "We Are the Champions" and others from the iconic show, in addition to refreshing new takes on old favorites. "Will Will Rock You" starts off as the original recording that fans will instantly recognize, before seamlessly transforming into a live performance that has members of the audience participating in the anthemic track. "Don't Stop Me Now" features a re-recorded guitar section from Brian May to resemble the way the band plays the track today.
Listeners will also be treated to Queen's unique rendition of the "20th Century Fox Fanfare," along with unreleased live tracks from performances that took place in London, Paris and Rio de Janiero.
The Bohemian Rhapsody Original Soundtrack will be released via Hollywood Records on Oct. 19, two weeks prior to the movie's Nov. 2 release date.
It will be interesting to see if the soundtrack finally gives Queen their 10th number 1 album in the UK. Also with what seems to be a real positive buzz about the Movie in America how will the soundtrack chart in the USA? This could be a really interesting period in Queen's amazing career.
