Queen Giving "News of the World" the Deluxe Treatment With Four Disc Set

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

Queen will release an expanded 4-disc box set of the News of the World to mark the album’s 40th anniversary.

News of the World, the sixth Queen album, was released on October 28, 1977. The album is Queen’s best selling album to date.

News of the World was a format change for Queen. The previous album, A Day At The Races, was self-produced and often reviewed as “boring”.

For this record the band decided to rock-up and orchestrate less. They brought in Mike Stone to co-produce and spent two months writing, recording and producing, finishing in September 77 and releasing the album four weeks later.

News of the World featured "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions". The album reached number 3 in the USA and number 4 in the UK.

The new edition will feature the original album as well as two additional albums of rare and/or unreleased tracks. It will also come with a 40-page book of images.

Queen News of the World will be released on November 17, 2017.
