The official soundtrack for Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody biopic has been revealed; will feature rare live recordings and new studio recordings.

Set to arrive on October 19, the soundtrack will include rare live recordings, including the band’s landmark 1985 Live Aid performance (previously only available as video footage), in addition to new and original studio recordings.

The Live Aid material, recorded in 1985, includes versions of Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Gaga, Hammer to Fall and We Are the Champions. The LP will also feature a hybrid live-studio take on We Will Rock You, and a version of Don’t Stop Me Now with newly recorded Brian May guitar parts.
