Audio from Queen’s legendary Live Aid performance is being released for the first time ever.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Radio Ga Ga’, ‘Hammer To Fall’ and ‘We Are The Champions’ from the historic set at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 13th July 1985 will form part of the official soundtrack to the upcoming Queen and Freddie Mercury movie biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

Together with Queen’s biggest hits, other highlights on the album include an alternative ‘movie mix’ of ‘We Will Rock You’ and four further live tracks – ‘Keep Yourself Alive’ (Live At The Rainbow), ‘Now I'm Here’ (Live At Hammersmith Odeon), ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ (Live In Paris) and ‘Love Of My Life’ (Live At Rock In Rio).

Elsewhere ‘Don't Stop Me Now’ features Brian's newly recorded guitar parts, while ‘Doing All Right’ by Brian May and Roger Taylor’s former band Smile has been re-recorded by May and Taylor alongside Smile vocalist Tim Staffell at London’s Abbey Road Studios.

The album also opens with May and Taylor’s own take on the famous 20th Century Fox Fanfare.

The 22 songs on the soundtrack were produced by Brian May and Roger Taylor, with engineering and co-production by long-time Queen studio collaborators Justin Shirley-Smith, Kris Fredriksson and Joshua J Macrae, and mastering by Adam Ayan and Bob Ludwig.

Unlike Queen's soundtrack to ‘Flash Gordon’, no spoken dialogue from ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is included on this new album.

The Queen ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ soundtrack is released on Friday 19th October ahead of the movie hitting UK cinemas on 23rd October.
