Queen have announced that they will be releasing four rare live recordings from their legendary performance at Live Aid 1985 at Wembley Stadium, as part of the  original soundtrack for the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody The soundtrack itself will contain 22 songs, featuring live recordings of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Hammer To Fall’, ‘We Are The Champions’ and ‘Radio Ga Ga’. The four live recordings were only previously available in video form as bonus content on DVD.

The film hits cinemas November 2nd, with the Bohemian Rhapsody Original Soundtrack release slated for October 19th. The soundtrack boasts a wide selection of the best live and recorded tracks spanning Queen’s illustrious career.

Rami Malek has the starring role as Freddie Mercury, and very-well-cast Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, and Joseph Mazzello as John Deacon. The film will tell the story of Queen from their formation in 1970 up to 1985, when they performed at the Live Aid charity concert at Wembley Stadium.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Malek said of Mercury “Here’s a man that would sing ‘We Are The Champions’ in an arena to thousands of people and they’re all singing it back to him […] His ability to unify people, no matter who they are, was so far ahead of it’s time. I can’t think of anyone else that was capable of that.”
