The ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Soundtrack is at Last Being Released
Forget A Star is Born – the genuinely most anticipated film of the year is surely Bohemian Rhapsody, the long languishing Queen biopic…at last arriving in theaters November 2.
Obviously the soundtrack had to be monumental – and indeed it is. Produced by the band’s Brian May and Roger Taylor, it is a fascinating sort of career retrospective. To wit, it features carefully chosen classics like “Somebody to Love” and “Another One Bites the Dust,” plus a special movie mix of “We Will Rock You,” rare live versions of “Fat Bottomed Girls” and “Keep Yourself Alive,” and most thrillingly, life-altering Live Aid versions of “Radio Ga Ga,” “We Are the Champions,” and, naturally, the title track.
The wildly buzzed about film itself stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, the Mr Robot star almost eerily resembling the exalted Queen frontman. Though there remain detractors, it is impossible to deny the breathless excitement leading up to its release.
The Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack will be released Friday, October 19th – two weeks ahead of the theatrical debut. If you’re atwitter with anticipation, it will surely hold you over.
