Published Feb 26, 2015Queen have revealed they'll be putting their recent Queen Forever collection out on vinyl, with a new box set adding a 12-inch showcasing William Orbit's remix of "Let Me in Your Heart Again."
The UK classic rock group posted on their website that a five-disc vinyl set lands in the UK April 13, with a North American release set for April 28. The first four platters will cover the 36 tracks presented on the earlier double-CD release, issued last November through Hollywood Records.
The fifth slab of vinyl features William Orbit's remix of the band's "Let Me in Your Heart Again." A press release explains that the revamped track had been held off the CD release to be used in last year's Coca-Cola (RED) AIDS awareness campaign. The single has now been transferred to vinyl. Featured on the flip will be an, ahem, dynamite recreation of Queen Forever's cover art, etched onto vinyl by a laser beam.
As previously reported, Queen Forever is the first project to feature "new" vocals from the late Freddie Mercury since 1995's Made in Heaven. "Let Me in Your Heart Again" was put together using an unused vocal take recorded during the band's sessions behind 1984 The Works, while "There Must Be More to Live Than This" was an unfinished collaboration with Michael Jackson dating back to 1981.
