Straight on the wish list..
A new box-set of Freddie Mercury‘s solo material has been announced on the same day as what would’ve been the late music icon’s 73rd birthday.
For the first time ever, the ‘Never Boring’ collections offers a curated selection of Mercury’s music,visuals and spoken words.
Consisting of three CDs with 32 tracks, a Blu-rau and DVD featuring 12 promo videos and a 10″x10″ hardback book, the new collection provides fans with the chance to delve into Freddie’s work outside of Queen. As well as a newly mixed 11-track special edition of ‘Mr Bad Guy’, fans can also take home a special nine-track edition of ‘Barcelona’ – featuring his iconic performances with Montserrat Cabelle.
Rami Malek, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Mercury, explained: “Freddie was extreme. He was absolute, he was all or nothing, he was always or never. Freddie Mercury was never boring.”
Check out the full tracklisting for the latest collection below. It’s out on October 11.
