36-Track Compilation Package featuring Queen's First New Freddie Mercury Led Tracks Since 1995 Plus Additional Rare Sought After Cuts & Classic Hits!
Comes Complete with a Bonus 12" Single featuring a Special William Orbit Mix of the Only Recently Heard Mercury Song “Let Me In Your Heart Again” b/w a Laser Etching
The original 36 track 2CD Queen Forever release will now be made available as a 180g 4LP vinyl box set which includes an additional 12” single bonus disc exclusive to the set featuring a special William Orbit mix of the only recently heard Freddie Mercury track “Let Me In Your Heart Again.” The Orbit mix was held back from the Forever CD release and only surfaced for a limited period to support the Coca-Cola (RED) AIDS awareness campaign mounted at the tail end of last year. The B side of the 12” single has a further bonus feature exclusive to this box set – a laser etching of the box set cover illustration.
Distinguishing itself as the first Queen album to feature new Freddie Mercury led tracks since the band’s 1995 Made In Heaven album, Queen Forever brings out into the light the long anticipated track from Queen and Michael Jackson, "There Must Be More to Life Than This,": an unfinished Mercury-Queen track "Let Me In Your Heart Again" originating from the band’s The Works album recording sessions (featured on this vinyl package in a newly available William Orbit mix) and a new ballad version of Mercury’s first solo hit, his Giorgio Moroder collaboration, "Love Kills," which is currently being heavily played at UK and European radio.
The rest of the package mixes Queen hits, classic tracks and celebrates the extraordinary musical path of one of the world’s greatest rock bands. Reaching back as far as 1974 with fan favorite "Nevermore," a Mercury song originally included on Queen II, Queen Forever progresses to feature songs that spotlight the band’s songwriting prowess, studio experimentation and remarkable development, and is completed with latter-day Queen hits, including ’91’s no. 1 "These Are The Days Of Our Lives" and ‘95’s "Too Much Love Will Kill You," together with the poignant "A Winter’s Tale," recorded during Freddie’s final Queen recording sessions in Montreux in 1991.
Queen Forever is a thrilling showcase for exclusive new Queen recordings but equally as much a paean to the extraordinary musical achievements of John Deacon, Brian May, Roger Taylor and the late Freddie Mercury, whose singular talent we again get to marvel at through this meticulously presented 36 track collection!
