As uDiscover Music previously reported, the new box set of Freddie Mercury’s solo recordings, Never Boring was released on 11 October by Hollywood Records in North America and Mercury Records in the rest of the world.
The box includes three CDs containing a total of 32 tracks, a Blu-ray and DVD with 13 promo videos and an interview remade in high definition, plus a 120-page, 10”x10” hardback book packed with images, many of which are rare and unpublished.
Never Boring also contains thoughts and quotes from Mercury himself, and has an introduction by Rami Malek, whose portrayal of the entertainer in Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation’s smash hit movie Bohemian Rhapsody won him an Oscar. A double-sided poster with an image of Mercury and an original work from synesthetic artist Jack Coulter, inspired by his song ‘Mr Bad Guy,’ are also part of the new package.
Never Boring is out now and can be bought here.
