Queen are premiering a new ballad version of the Freddie Mercury tune, “Love Kills”, as a preview to their forthcoming compilation, “Queen Forever.”
The original song was the first solo track recorded by the late Queen legend in 1984; it was featured in producer Giorgio Moroder's 1984 restoration and edit of the 1927 silent film “Metropolis”, as part of the project's new soundtrack.
Due November 10 (Nov. 11 in North America), “Queen Forever” presents a mix of Queen’s hits and classic tracks, including three previously unreleased songs featuring Mercury.
The package include a long anticipated track from Queen and Michael Jackson, “There Must Be More to Life Than This”, a previously unfinished Mercury-Queen track “Let Me In Your Heart Again” originating from the band’s “The Works” album recording sessions, and the new stripped-down take on “Love Kills.”
"Queen Forever" will be available as a 20-track single CD and as an extended 36-track, two-CD set.
