Queen to Reissue Greatest Hits This Summer

Queen’s Greatest Hits album is getting a fresh look for a reissue this summer.

The 1981 release –which stayed  stayed on the Billboard 200 album chart for a whopping 439 weeks–will offer a new collector’s edition Greatest Hits CD on July 2, the group announced.

Fans can also  buy four limited-edition color cassettes, each tied to a band member, at the Queen online store:  frosted aqua for Freddie Mercurypink for Brian Maygreen for Roger Taylor and blue for John Deacon.

The group’s latest episode of Queen the Greatest, a 50-week YouTube series celebrating the band’s greatest moments-features Queen guitarist Brian May talking about the evolution of “We Will Rock You” in  Queen: 1977 We Will Rock You (Part 1) — Rocking the World.

In the interview, May explains, “We wanted to speak to our audience and tell them they were part of us…and, I could hear the stamps in my head, I could hear the claps, I could hear that beat.”
