Queen + Adam Lambert have announced their new ‘QueenPod’ podcast will be hosting a special podcast celebrating their new Live Around The World album.
The Queen Podcast has been designed as fans’ official one-stop shop for everything related to the legendary rock band. Joined by comedians and Queen superfans John Robins and Sooz Kempner, host Rohan Acharya and Queen archivist and documentarian Simon Lupton aim to take fans through all of Queen’s catalog, track by track, album by album, listening along to the tunes and analyzing them (well, at least talking about how awesome they are).
They also have news and stories about the band, fan questions and queries, and some very special guests. You can check the ‘QueenPod’ Live Around The World special here.
Elsewhere in Queen news, the band recently had an impressive three songs honored in this year’s Million-Air awards. With 7 million total performances, both “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “We Will Rock You” have earned roughly 40 years of continuous play, and at 6 million performances, “We Are The Champions” has garnered over 34 years of continuous play. The combined airplay total on Queen’s three awarded singles is an astounding 20 million.
The news broke as the band celebrated their 10th number one album in the UK with Live Around The World: their first number one album in 25 years since 1995’s Made in Heaven. Live Around The World is a compilation album which features highlights from the last decade of touring with prominent singer Adam Lambert.
Receiving the news, Brian May and Roger Taylor responded saying, “What a welcome surprise! It means a lot to us that our music is still connecting, and now reaching a whole new generation of rock fans out there. We hope to be back out there soon.”
