Queen to Release “News of the World” 40th Anniversary Edition

Legendary rock band Queen will be releasing a special 40th anniversary edition of their hit 1977 album, News of the World. This news comes just a month after the band wrapped up a massive North American tour featuring talented young guest vocalist Adam Lambert.

News of the World was released on October 28, 1977. The album contained massive hits such as “We Are The Champions,” and “We Will Rock You.” These two massive hits are so ingrained in our culture that they’re still routinely heard on stadium speakers at sporting events throughout the nation. The album has been certified 4x platinum by the RIAA, and has sold more than six million copies worldwide.

Now Queen has announced that they will be issuing a special box collection on November 17th. It will of course feature the original album on CD, as well as several outtakes and even alternate recordings of the beloved songs. Also included are a documentary DVD, a vinyl pressing, a hardcover photo book, posters, stickers, and more. The decked-out anniversary edition is available for preorder now on Queen’s webstore.

The greatest hits of all time will always withstand the test of time. Forty years down the road, News of the World is still a phenomenal album!
