Bohemian Rhapsody, the long-awaited Freddie Mercury biopic starring Rami Malek, is set to finally open in theaters on November 2nd. But on October 19th, the official soundtrack from the biopic will hit stores, featuring exclusive, previously unreleased Queen music. The Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack spans a total of 22 tracks. Five of these are taken from Queen’s legendary, 21-minute Live Aid performance in July 1985 and have never before been released in audio form. Additionally there will be all-new takes on Queen classics, recorded specifically for this soundtrack. One is a version of “We Will Rock You” that incorporates both a studio cut and live performance audio complete with audience participation. Queen also recorded their very own arrangement of the famous 20th Century Fox theme song. The entire soundtrack was produced by May and Queen drummer Roger Taylor. The tracklist announcement came on what would have been Mercury’s 72nd birthday, September 5th.
