NEWS PROVIDED BY
Following their massively successful North American leg of the “Rhapsody Tour” in the summer of 2019, Queen + Adam Lambert look forward to bringing their show to the Land of the Rising Sun.
To mark the Japanese tour in January of 2020, we are pleased to announce that a special compilation album featuring Top 12 classic Queen songs voted by Japanese fans, is set to be released. The album will be out on 15th January in 2020.
The Queen film “Bohemian Rhapsody”, the biggest-grossing music biopic of all time, was also a super smash hit in Japan becoming the biggest film release of the year. Overall sales (digital and physical) of the band’s whole catalogue together with the acclaimed soundtrack album have amounted to over 1.6 million units/copies in Japan alone so far this year.
To commemorate the forthcoming Japan tour, the special Japanese “fan-voted” compilation album is now set to be released. Fans are invited to cast their votes at the special website for their favorite song by Queen from all the 15 studio albums. The top twelve songs voted for on the website will comprise the final tracklisting for what is being dubbed “The 12 Best Queen Songs as selected by Japanese fans”. The physical CD release of the album will be exclusive to Japan, with the digital available worldwide. The limited-edition CD will contain a DVD including music videos from the top 12 fan-voted songs.
In addition, a draw among the voters will offer fans the chance to win 5 personal autographs by Brian May and Roger Taylor!
And from the fans who participated in the voting, around 700 names will be credited within the booklet by lottery.
Cast your vote below!
Voting will run from Wednesday, 6th November 2019 until on Monday, 25th November 2019.
