Coming Soon: Freddie Mercury Solo Career Box Set

Ready, Freddie?! Happy Birthday to the legend.

Music legend Freddie Mercury would have turned 73-years-old today. 

In commemoration of the icon’s birthday, it was announced that a collection of Mercury’s solo performances will be distributed to the world on October 11th. 

The Queen frontman’s solo projects will be highlighted in a box set called Never Boring: The Freddie Mercury Solo Box Set. 12 tracks will be featured in this special edition package from his albums Mr. Bad Guy and Barcelona. The box set will be issued on three CDs, including a Blu-ray and DVD that will feature 13 live performances, promotional videos, and an interview. All will be sold separately on CD, LP, digital and streaming platforms.

In addition, quotes from the legend and a 120-page hardback photo book, which has never-before-seen images, will be included in the box set. Actor Rami Malek, who played Mercury in the Bohemian Rhapsody film, wrote the book introduction, stating, “Never Boring brings to your life a piece of Freddie. I hope you’re able to sit with this collection and let the music, images and excerpts of Freddie Mercury’s life inspire you, like it did me.” A double-sided poster will also be a part of the box set.

Aside from the special edition box set, Universal Music Group released an animated music video for Mercury’s 1985 song, “Love Me Like There’s No Tomorrow” to celebrate the legend’s birthday. Check it out below:
